Looks like a rebellion is brewing
NUNS (Our Ukraine and Peoples’Self Defence) are having second thoughts about the strategic direction that Yushchenko has taken Ukraine.
Representatives of six of the nine political forces that form NUNS have responded to President’s statements that NUNS deputies do not want to renew the democratic coalition with BYuT, and that parliamentary elections remain the only way out of the crisis.
They declared: “We, the leaders of the majority of the political forces on which the NUNS bloc and fraction is based, are extremely surprised by the president’s assertion about “the absence of trust in Yulia Tymoshenko” and about the disinclination of the NUNS fraction to return to the democratic coalition.”
They accuse the NUNS leadership of avoiding party meetings because: “the puppet-masters from Bank Street [pres’s secretariat] are fearful that at the first sitting of the fraction a decision will be approved to return the fraction to the ranks of the democratic coalition.. We yet again responsibly declare that the coalition of democratic forces in parliament should, and must be renewed in a matter of hours. For this only one thing is required – the wish and political will of the president.” The signatories of the declaration “call on the president to cease his motiveless attacks against the government, the PM, and the coalition of democratic forces, particularly today, when the country needs unity to meet the challenges to Ukraine from the world financial crisis.”
So…big trouble in the NUNS camp..
