President Victor Yushchenko, Parliamentary Speaker Oleksandr Moroz and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych have agreed to create a commission to improve Ukraine’s constitution and system of government, president's press office reported.
The President described their conversation as “useful.”
“The Verkhovna Rada, the Government and the President want to secure political stability in Ukraine. To achieve this goal, we must follow national priorities. We discussed some of these priorities today,” he said, adding that they had spoken about what could become their “common anchor” to stabilize the political situation and normalize his relations with the cabinet and parliament.
He reiterated that constitutional reform and its improper enforcement were to blame for the country’s political instability.
“There is an understanding that this process is difficult and requires great composure and respect for national priorities not to have empty confrontation again,” he said.
“This is a good road map, which, I think, will help restore balances.”
The President said they had also agreed to fulfill the National Unity Pact and establish a National Council for Ukraine’s Strategic Development.
The leaders compromised on who would become the country’s new foreign minister.
Mr. Yushchenko said the government would hold a meeting next week to sum up results of 2006 and formulate basic directions of Ukraine’s home policy for 2007.
They also agreed to increase social spending.
“We agreed to do it in April, July and October so that our pensioners and other citizens of Ukraine should feel that the social priorities we are going to implement in 2007 are improving,” he said.
Mr. Yushchenko, Mr. Moroz and Mr. Yanukovych discussed ways to resolve some other problems.
