Ukraine's Three Main Liberal Parties Move Closer To Coalition

April 13, 2006 -- Ukraine's three main liberal parties today signed a protocol aimed at advancing the process of forming a governing coalition.

The document was signed by the top leaders of the pro-presidential Our Ukraine party, former Prime Minister Yuliya Tymoshenko's bloc, and the Socialist Party.

Talking to reporters in Kyiv after the ceremony, they said any coalition agreement would be based on the principles contained in a memorandum drafted before the March 26 legislative election. The draft memorandum said the party that would garner the largest number
of votes would nominate its representative for prime minister.

Tymoshenko's bloc came second in the March 26 polls, ahead of Our Ukraine and the Socialist Party.

Coalition talks have been stumbling because of President Viktor Yushchenko's insistence that the future coalition implement his policies.
