Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn has announced the creation of a majority at the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament. He made a respective announcement while opening a parliament session on Tuesday, UKRINFORM reported.

"I notify the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on the formation on October 4, 2010 of the Stability and Reform parliamentary majority at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the sixth convocation, which currently numbers 227 people's deputies," the speaker said.
The Party of Regions, Lytvyn Bloc and the Communist Party signed a political agreement on the establishment of a majority at the Verkhovna Rada.

The Speaker said that, according to the Constitutional Court ruling that abolished the political reform of 2004 and returned effect to the 1996 Constitution, the Verkhovna Rada now does not have a coalition-opposition political format.

"Signing of this agreement is vital because the coalition-opposition system has lost its legal meaning, and it is necessary to prevent a Brownian motion, because today there is no clear regulation of functioning of the factions," Volodymyr Lytvyn said.

According to him, signing of this agreement reflects "the desire of factions to continue shouldering tough responsibility for organization of the Verkhovna Rada work, as well as for implementation of the decisions to be taken in conjunction with the Cabinet of Ministers."
