He said this to journalists on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada, Censor.NET reports.
"I think that we lacked five or six votes (to support the resignation of Kvitashvili - Ed.) only due to the political tension in the hall. I expect that we will vote this issue today if the tension falls," Parubii said.
He added that Rada has still not dismissed Kvitashvili due to the fact that some factions of the coalition demanded to grant him a hearing in the parliament.
At the same time Parubii noted that "there is hysteria" in the Session Hall each time when it comes to personnel affairs." "And when we start talking about the fight against corruption - the hall immediately empties," the vice-speaker of the parliament concluded.
