The parliament intends to consider draft resolutions on scheduling the date of the next presidential elections during its plenary week of June 16-19, Ukrainian news reported.

Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn announced this to journalists in response to a question from Ukrainian News.

"This issue will not be considered during this plenary week (June 2-5). We have agreed that it will be considered during the next plenary week (June 16-19)," Lytvyn said while commenting on the outcome of a meeting of the conciliatory council of parliamentary faction leaders.

According to Lytvyn, the issue requires additional consideration by the parliamentary committee on nation-building and local self-government.

Lytvyn again stressed that he considered organization of the next presidential elections on January 17, 2010, to be constitutional.

As a reminder, in the draft resolution No. 4477-2 that was registered with the parliament on May 20, Lytvyn proposes scheduling the next presidential elections for January 17, 2010.

In the draft resolution, Lytvyn also proposes reducing the period of the presidential election process from 120 to 90 days.
