Communist Party leader expects neither early parliamentary elections, nor systematic work of Rada
The Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko has said that there will be no parliamentary elections in Ukraine in the near future, and one shouldn't expect systematic work in parliament.
"Now I doubt if there will be elections in the nearest future. Probably, early elections will be held later, but not now. You realize that the half of the parliament that entered the parliament in majority constituencies, invested its own money [into the election campaign], and those, apart from the Communist Party faction, that entered under lists, also had to pay to get onto the list," the politician said at the press conference with Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.
He said that he does not see prospects for holding early parliamentary elections so far.
"Although people have started talking about, in my opinion, this is a form of pressure on some deputies," he said.
However, Symonenko predicted that Verkhovna Rada of this convocation would not work stably.
"In fact, this Verkhovna Rada won't work. It'll spontaneously hold sittings, but unfortunately there will be no systematic work that could ensure every political force will be able fulfill the promises it gave," the party leader said.
Moreover, according to Symonenko, the Communist Party wonders, why Head of State Agency for Investment and National Projects of Ukraine Vladyslav Kaskiv still holds his office after signing in November 2012 agreement on cooperation with Spanish Gas Natural Fenosa in the frames of the construction of LNG-terminal in Odesa region.
"We'll demand an answer to the questions we're concerned with. And if we don't get an answer, we'll definitely ask questions about the responsibility of the government and put forward a vote of no-confidence in the government," the politician said.
