President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko is assured that new democratic majority should start its activity from adoption of new concept of social budget. “We should start 2008 with a new democratic majority in the parliament and this democratic majority - with a new budget,” he said at a political meeting in Ivano-Frankivsk on Sunday.

Yushchenko spelled out his social agenda, suggesting raising salaries, pensions and maternity benefits. According to him, it is important to make education affordable, particularly for orphans and those from families with many children.

Yushchenko said all these changes could be introduced if the democratic forces formed a parliamentary majority. He reiterated his demand that Ukraine’s reelected parliament must repeal legislative immunity to uproot political corruption.

“I am convinced the choice that will be made on September 30 will eventually lead us to one of the biggest victories – to a democratic majority,” he said.
