Batkivshchyna Party Leader Yulia Tymoshenko says the Batkivshchyna team will soon announce the full list of worthy party candidates and after the parliamentary elections is ready to form a parliamentary coalition with the Servant of the People party to jointly implement a plan of actions to raise the standard of living of Ukrainian citizens.
“So far we only presented the first five names on our list because these people are mentioned in the ballot. We have a strong and decent top five. But our full list has also been approved – 225 people,” Yulia Tymoshenko said on the program “Today” on channel Ukraina.
The politician added that Serhiy Taruta’s Osnova party and Valentyn Nalyvaichenko’s Justice party are supporting Batkivshchyna in the early parliamentary elections in 2019.
“These are strong, honest people. I think our union will strengthen our team,” she said, adding that the complete party list will be published soon.
The Head of the Batkivshchya Party also said that the President’s team has said that a coalition with Batkivshchyna is possible, but if that does not happen and the Servant of the People party needs votes for decisions, they “will be there for them.”
Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that today “it’s not about posts” it’s about how to improve the lives of the people of Ukraine. Batkivshchyna is proposing that its New Course for Ukraine become the plan for the rebirth of Ukraine.
“We want after the parliamentary elections to create a ‘coalition of action’ based on the New Course for Ukraine, which will become a coalition agreement that in the short term will really be able to give people a result. If we join the coalition and jointly form the new government with Servant of the People we will also propose the ‘First 100 Days of Government’ program, which will include the adoption of a new Tax Code, lower tariffs and increased social security,” the politician said.
Yulia Tymoshenko also stressed that today the Constitutional Court began consideration of the appeal of the constitutionality of the decree of the current President on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada. In her opinion, the newly elected President’s decree was constitutional.
“Almost 80% of people in Ukraine want this parliament dissolved. This parliament ‘deserves’ to be dissolved, because the majority in parliament for five years destroyed people’s lives and its dissolution is legitimate and constitutional: there is no coalition and the parliament works against its own people,” said the politician.
