LUHANSK, November 17. /TASS/. The People’s Council (parliament) of the Luhansk People’s Republic is open for cooperation with parliaments of all states, including Ukraine, Speaker Alexey Karyakin said. He was reelected as chairman of the republic’s newly-elected parliament on Monday.
“We are open for all, not only for Russia. We are ready to work with Ukraine,” Karyakin said.
The republic’s provisional constitution will be in force as long as combat operations continue. When peace is restored, when "the war goes out, we will sit and do so that the constitution will meet all the standards,” Karyakin said.
The speaker and other deputies signed the oath earlier on Monday.
Alexey Karyakin who was chairman of the previous-convocation parliament was re-elected by a vote of 41 out of 43 deputies registered at the meeting. Two abstained.
The speaker pledged to do everything for the parliament to work for the good of the republic’s people and support the policy approved by voters.
Deputies to the new parliament, 35 from the movement Peace to Luhanshchina (Luhansk region) and 15 from the Luhansk Economic Union, were elected on November 2. The list of the movement was headed by LPR leader Igor Plotnitsky, Prime Minister Gennady Tsypkalov and parliament chairman Karyakin. The list of the Economic Union was headed by a candidate for the post of LPR head, the leader of the Federation of Trade Unions, Oleg Akimov.
