KIEV, December 8. /TASS/. The Opposition Bloc, the fourth for the number of seats in the Verkhovna Rada, intends to form a shadow cabinet and a new political party.
The basis of the Opposition Bloc is formed by members of the former ruling Party of Regions.
“We will form an opposition government that will propose a right program for economic development,” a parliament member from the bloc Serhiy Lyovochkin said on Inter television, adding the opposition considered the current government illegitimate.
The opposition plans to focus its cabinet’s work on economic problems holding the hryvnia stable, returning work of the energy system to normal and providing jobs. The bloc calls for settlement of the situation in south-eastern Ukraine through negotiations, and the first step must be lifting the economic blockade imposed on Donbass.
“Another response to the coalition’s antidemocratic actions will be the formation of a powerful political party based on the bloc,” Lyovochkin added.
