The Party of Regions initiates election of speaker of the Parliament Volodymyr Lytvyn to position of chairman of the parliamentary group for the preparation of the 1st session of the Verkhovna Rada of the 7th convocation.

The relevant initiative was announced at the first meeting of the preparatory group by secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Andriy Kluiyev, ForUm correspondent reports.
Meanwhile, representative of the All-Ukrainian Union "Freedom" (Svoboda) Ruslan Koshulinsky made a counter offer.

"Let someone from the opposition lead the preparatory group. Mr. Lytvyn represents the Party of Regions, and if a there is a chairman from the opposition, I think, critical issues will be mitigated," he said.

Lytvyn responded: "As a rule, the speaker of the previous Parliament carries out all preparatory work. It does not mean I want some preference for the future. I simply do not ask for them. I do not want you to do some politics on this occasion".

"When you elect the speaker (of the Parliament of the 7th convocation - Ed.), I will thank to you: one trouble less," the speaker of the parliament said.

Meanwhile, as ForUm correspondent reports, there has been announced 30 minutes break in the work of the group at the request of the united opposition.

Formal reason is to get familiar with the provision on the preparatory group.
