Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn is continuing to actively support the idea of returning to the majority system of elections to the Verkhovna Rada and other local government bodies.

"We need to abandon an electoral system, which obliges MPs to unite into political unions and act on the instructions of their leader," he said in an interview with Channel 5, UKRINFORM reported.

In his opinion, there will be no fighting in parliament under the majority election system. "If the deputies are elected in constituencies, will they arrange fights, block the parliament, and will the public thank them for that?" Lytvyn asked.

He also called for the formation of public opinion in favor of a return to the majority system. "I would very much like many people to prompt the Verkhovna Rada to adopt a law on elections on a majority basis," Lytvyn said.

The speaker also noted that parliamentary elections would not be held in 2011, because the parliament was elected for five years, rather than for four years. In his opinion, the talk that the elections should be held in 2011 was caused by the desire of some politicians "to bring representatives of oligarchs to parliament," and the parliament, in his opinion, will resist this by all means.

Since 2006 Ukraine has completely switched to a proportional system of elections to the parliament, as well as to regional, district and city councils.
