Will he or won’t he?
The Parliament has moved into Summer recession and it’s next regular session is scheduled to commence on September 1.
Any attempt by Yushchenko to dismiss the Parliament and force another round of parliamentary elections ahead of the Presidential election scheduled for January 17, 2010 would be counter productive.
Yushchenko’s supporters claim that there are grounds for dismissing the Parliament is highly disputable.
On July 24 Victor Yushchenko will be in his last six months of his five year term of office.
With the passing of this date Yushchenko will lose authority under Article 90 of Ukraine’s constitution to dismiss Ukraine’s parliament. If he is to have any chance of success in forcing another round of parliamentary elections he will have to act this week or risk being ruled out of order by Ukraine’s Constitutional Court.
