KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. Ukraine’s party Svoboda (Freedom) has called for early parliamentary elections as the only way to stop "revenge of oligarchs."
"The failure of the no-confidence vote to the Yatesenyuk government is literally a full revenge of oligarchs in Ukraine. It is clear that the degraded parliamentary coalition will not be able to get the country out of the profound political crisis. This is proved by the failure and, as a matter of fact, unwillingness of the coalition factions to ensure 100% vote for the government resignation," Svoboda said in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s staying in the prime minister’s office, according to Svoboda, is an "outright defiance of the authorities against the Ukrainians." The parliament, as a supreme representative body, "is just a puppet tool in the hands of oligarchic clans," the party said.
"The only way out is to reset the parliament and hold early elections," the statement underscored.
Ukraine’s parliament on Tuesday failed to send Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and his government to resignation. A no-confidence vote was supported by 194 lawmakers whereas at least 226 votes are needed to pass a resolution. So, the situation in the Ukrainian parliament looks quite paradoxical as several minutes before the no-confidence voting the Rada recognized the government’s work as unsatisfactory.
Meanwhile, Mustafa Nayem, a lawmaker with the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, said that the no-confidence vote was a conspiracy of the president and prime minister with oligarchs.
"During the no-confidence vote, MPs of the Opposition Bloc close to Akhmetov (oligarch Rinat Akhmetov) and the Revival party close to Kolomoisky (oligarch and billionaire Igor Kolomoisky) left the session hall," he said sarcastically. "That is all you should know about Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government.
Svoboda has six seats in the current Verkhovna Rada (parliament).
