The faction of Our Ukraine – People’s Self-Defense will propose the candidacy of Ivan Plushch for post of the Verkhovna Rada speaker.

MP Oleksander Omelchenko claimed this to journalists today, speaking about the today’s meeting of President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko with OU-PSD lawmakers.

Commenting on the results of the meeting of president Yushchenko with the faction People’s Self-Defense deputy Kyryl Kulikov said the president declared that OU-PSD faction has a unique chance to appoint its speaker.

“Still I don’t understand this – whose speaker was before?” the politician expressed his indignation.

Speaking about the support of Plushch candidature in the parliament, the MP said: “I cannot say I am enthusiastic regarding this idea, but I have an impression that this candidate is only one, who can get support.”

He also pointed out that the election of Plushch for the speaker’s post doesn’t mean the early parliament elections will take place.

“Re-elections are out of the question until the financial crisis is settled. Plushch has to do his best to prevent the re-elections. And I think that the president understand the impossibility to hold parliamentary elections now, though his team has different opinion,” Kulikov said.

In her turn, PR deputy Olena Lukash said that Party of Regions had not seen a draft bill on submission of Ivan Plushch candidature for the speaker’s post.

“We have not seen the document on submission of Ivan Plushch candidature for the speaker’s post. They only talk about it. The only thing done is a resolution regarding Lytvyn,” Lukash said.

“Let them submit a draft bill first, and then our faction will determine its position. It is dangerous to trust verbal information from Our Ukraine,” she added.
