KIEV, April 24. /TASS/. Ukrainian presidential adviser Nikolay Tomenko has suggested Friday dissolving the parliament and holding snap elections.
"Verkhovna Rada is not working, there was no quorum yesterday to open a plenary session. Today, we see the same picture," Tomenko, who is an MP from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, said. "There are two ways - we either work or hold snap election in autumn," he stressed.
"There are deputies who have not appeared in the session hall for a year. Let those people do business, and be replaced with professional politicians," Tomenko suggested, adding that the number of parliament seats should be reduced from 450 to 300.
Opposition Bloc party has also spoken in favor of holding snap election. Similar suggestions were voiced by Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna party and Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party.
