KIEV, November 21. /TASS/. Ukraine's parliamentary opposition has decided to introduce Opposition Day". A coalition agreement signed by five parliamentary parties on Friday contains a provision on it.

"Opposition Day will mean an opportunity to offer an original agenda once every week at a plenary session of the Rada,” the document says.

The agreement also says members of the future coalition have agreed to deny seats in it to members of the Opposition Bloc, which is force number four in the Rada, and to the deputies who voted for the passage of dictatorial laws on January 16, 2014.

On that day, the deputies representing the Party of Regions and the Communist Party adopted a package of laws, including the one on greater responsibility for involvement in mass violent actions.

“Considering the fundamental political differences, incorporation of the Opposition Bloc political party’s faction in the coalition is impossible,” the agreement says.

Most members of the Opposition Bloc have membership of the former ruling Party of Regions. Upon the results of the October 26 parliamentary election, the block will be third largest political force in the new convocation of parliament.
