 Regime Wants to Vote for Azarov Bypassing the Law, Says Opposition

The opposition considers a regulation violation the introduction of Azarov’s candidacy for the post of Prime Minister on Wednesday.

According to Ukrainian Pravda, Batkivschyna deputy Serhii Sas stated: "You promised to abide the law on the Cabinet of Ministers and the law on the regulations. Thus, there is article 205, that we have no right to consent the appointment of the Prime Minister before forming factions and committees," said the deputy.

However, Volodymyr Lytvyn reminded that in 2007 this is how Yulia Tymoshenko became Prime Minister.

"Then the regulations were not the law," said Sas who is included in the regulatory committee.

In turn, Lytvyn said that if the Prime Minister is not approved on Wednesday, "it is obly going to happen next year."

He also said that the working group serves as the committee to which Sas replied that "it is absurd - let the working group do everything then."

As a result, the preparatory group supported the consideration of approval of Prime Minister after the elections of the Speaker.

Svoboda representative Andrii Mohnyk said that "if the country really needed Prime Minister then Azarov should have stayed in office instead of taking the mandate."

"But he was afraid that in this country all predecessors go to prison," added Svoboda deputy.

To which Yefremov noted that Azarov took the mandate to receive the support of the government from the new parliament.
