 In 2013 We May Hold Early Parliamentary and Presidential Elections, Turchynov

Early parliamentary and presidential elections may be held in 2013.

This was stated by one of Batkivschyna leaders Oleksandr Turchinov in an interview to Channel 5.

"In case of Ukraine's crazy sliding into the abyss does not stop, I do not exclude that 2013 could become a turning point for the country once again. Early parliamentary and presidential elections may be held to form a government that will save the country," he said.

According to Turchynov, from the beginning of the 2000s Ukraine had not had any delays in payment of salaries and pensions to state employees. "Now, those terrible times when people went for months without pay are returning," he said.

Also, commenting on the recent government economic initiatives, such as a tax on currency exchange, Turchinov said: "I do not rule out that after a couple more innovations like this this government and this regime will cease to exist. And, of course, Ukraine will face the situation - on the one hand, we will come to a default, to international isolation, on the other hand we will have to completely update the power. "

Opposition leader added that in 2013, there is a real danger that the government will attempt to privatize the Ukrainian land.

According to him, the Ukrainian economy has turned into a banal pyramid scheme, which exists due to crediting. "The Ukrainian banking system may be destroyed like a card house," said Turchinov.

In addition, he said the opposition will insist on the abolition of anti-constitutional laws, in particular, the laws on language, the referendum, the tax code and others.

According to Turchynov, these law have not actually been passed.

"The law is considered adopted if it receives votes from specific deputies. Not their cards, not some mythical people who can be at the same time in the parliament and somewhere abroad on holiday," he said.
