At an extraordinary congress of the “Samopomich” Union party, which took place on February 13 in Kharkiv, a resolution assessing the situation in the country and the government’s activities was adopted.
“Today, after more than a year’s work of the government headed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk, we must admit there is no proper public administration; key reforms vital to the country have either failed or haven’t come into existence at all; multibillion-dollar corruption schemes remain and revive, and the government has not prevented them, but has even helped some new ones to emerge; people have grown poor,” the document says.
“Given this, the “Samopomich” Union political party believes that the resignation of Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government is the only possible and civilized assessment of the activities of the Cabinet. This is the only way to prevent the collapse of the formal coalition and the appointment of new parliamentary elections, which can become a serious challenge for the country,” states the resolution.
The party has decided to entrust the parliamentary faction to initiate creation of a commission of the Verkhovna Rada to study the activities of the Cabinet under the guidance of Arseniy Yatsenyuk. The party also demands the President to immediately dismiss the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Viktor Shokin, “who turns his own agency into a weapon for political repression” and to renew the composition of the CEC immediately and completely.
