“Having drifted apart in political views on processes does not mean to enter a conflict and start mud-slinging,” Avakov wrote on his Facebook account commenting on Turchynov and Yatsenyuk’s withdrawal from the party.
“I have friends in Batkivshchina. I have a lot in common with these people and hope many good things are still in the future,” Avakov, who also used to be a member of the party, added.
Local political observers suggest that Turchynov and Yatsenyuk’s departure from Batkivshchina speaks for their intention to begin their independent political game and to distance themselves from Timoshenko during their parliamentary election campaign.
Ukraine will hold snap parliamentary elections on October 26.
Under the Ukrainian Constitution the head of state is free to disband parliament if a new coalition fails to take shape within a 30-day deadline. The election campaign will last 60 days and the elections proper are due on October 26.
Ukraine’s latest opinion polls indicate that the parliament’s composition may undergo fundamental change. According to the research group Rating, the top two places will be taken by parties not represented in the just-dissolved Verkhovna Rada - Petro Poroshenko’s Solidarity, which may receive 17.5% of the votes, and Oleg Lyashko’s Radical Party.
