Opposition will not take part in the voting for changes to the law on parliamentary elections, vice speaker Mykola Tomenko told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the official, the opposition fears that under the pretense of technical amendments the ruling party will try to introduce some major changes, in particular to cancel the norm on obligatory conservation of election documentation for the period of five years.

In his turn Party of Regions faction leader Oeksandr Yefremov declared such fears are groundless and 'nobody is going to fool the opposition."

The MP also added that the majority will not insist on voting for technical amendments if the opposition refuses to participate. According to him, the Central Election Commission can regulate this or that norm by itself issuing special explanatory notes.

Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn informed that the parliament had not received yet the official letter from CEC regarding the amendments to the law on parliamentary elections, though he knows about the proposition. Lytvyn also expressed hope that the parties would reach consensus on this issue.
