Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn has stated that January 2010 is the only constitutionally legal time to hold the next presidential election in Ukraineб according to Kyiv Post.

He gave this opinion during a press conference in Donetsk.

"The Constitution clearly states that the presidential election must take place in the last week of the last month in the fifth year of the president's term. Then the new president takes an oath in parliament. Let's recall, my colleagues, that the last time this occurred was on January 23, 2005. This means that the next time [for a presidential election] is going to be in January 2010," Lytvyn said, adding that he won't sign illegal bills.

The speaker also said that the political war is entering a hot phase in Ukraine.
