Yuschenko vows to dissolve parliament if his draft of constitution not passed
Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko has said he is ready to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, if it fails to adopt his draft of the constitution, which was tabled in parliament after a nationwide discussion, within 100 days.
"Given the results of a nationwide discussion, I'll submit a national draft of the constitution [for consideration] by the Verkhovna Rada. If Ukraine does not receive a new constitution within 100 days, the Verkhovna Rada will be dissolved. And early elections will be held simultaneously with a referendum on passing the main law of the country," he said during the presentation of his election program in Kyiv late on Monday.
