Director of the center for political studies "Penta" Volodymyr Fesenko believes that the union of the Batkivshchyna party and the Front for Change party is a political marriage of convenience, in which each participant takes personal interests into account, he told a press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

He also said that Yulia Tymoshenko did not give the Batkivshchyna party to Yatsenyuk and maintained her control over it.

"This is not a takeover, there is an objective process. The Batkivshchyna party is following the same way as the Party of Regions in 2005-2006. Tymoshenko has long called to unite on the basis of her party, and this idea has been partially implemented. The Batkivshchyna party will not disappear. The unification of all political forces will not happen because the main opposition leaders are competitors in the upcoming presidential elections," Fesenko said.

In turn, according to the political analyst Ihor Zhdanov, the merger of these two parties will not lead to qualitative changes in the work of Parliament.
