President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko believes the Verkhovna Rada has no right to go for recess until it adopts amendments to the state budget of Ukraine 2008 and two draft laws concerning the judicial reform. He said today at the press conference in Kyiv, as RBC-Ukraine reports.

“We have 15.5% inflation for 6 months. It obliges the government first of all, then the Parliament and all politicians to compensate the poor people their expenses, revise pensions and salaries,” said the President.

Yushchenko said the Parliament should adopt the draft laws about judicial reform and the status of judges. It is as important as the adoption of amendments to the state budget, said the Head of the state. “I call both coalition and opposition to find a compromise and come back to consideration of the projects,” said the President.

The Government’s draft law about the amendments to the Law of Ukraine “About State budget of Ukraine for 2008 and about the introduction of amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine” was registered in the Parliament on July 7.

But the Verkhovna Rada did not consider any of these questions for two working days. Yesterday and today in the morning, the Parliament’s podium was blocked by BYuT members who demanded immediate consideration of amendments to the state budget – 2008. The opposition members, in turn, plan to hear the Government’s report about social-economic situation in the country first.
