Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn has said that there are no legal grounds for holding early parliamentary elections.

Commenting at the request of journalists on BYuT leader Yulia Tymoshenko's initiative to hold a nationwide campaign for the holding of snap parliamentary elections, Lytvyn said that he was ready for a dialogue on early elections "on condition that we hold a roundtable meeting in parliament and agree that we'll accept a civilized election system."

"Let's make a decision on an open electoral system, and parties will nominate their candidates in the constituencies, while people will vote for their candidates," he said, UKRINFORM reported.

Lytvyn stressed that "we can speak about political and moral grounds for holding such elections," but added that there had actually been no legal grounds for holding them. He recalled that any election campaign could be financed only from the state budget and that the state budget for this year foresaw only UAH 40 million to hold early elections to the local authorities.
