 No common ground within coalition on elections in Mariupol and Krasnoarmiisk, - MP Lutsenko

The parliamentary coalition could not find a single solution on Monday regarding holding elections in Mariupol and Krasnoarmiisk.

This was announced by leader of Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction in the Parliament Yurii Lutsenko to journalists after the Coordination board meeting, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"Unfortunately, the coalition has not managed to find common ground on these matters," Lutsenko commented when asked about Mariupol and Krasnoarmiisk elections.

He reminded that Petro Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front proposed to hold the elections on Nov. 15, while Batkivshchyna and Samopomich "rejected the proposal and offered various options that postpone the elections until next year." Lutsenko also noted that the latter offered no alternative legislation on the issue.

The people's deputy says there shall be a draft law filed with the relevant committee of the Verkhovna Rada and voted by the parliament.

"This draft law has to be agreed upon by the coalition factions. Voting of a half of the coalition and non-coalition factions on this matter is unacceptable politically, as of me," Lutsenko said.
