 United Opposition is to Create Single Party

Political forces comprising united opposition will unite in a single party. Such intentions were announced to the journalists by Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Mykola Tomenko.

According to LIGABusinessInform, today at a meeting of the United opposition council Yatsenyuk announced the need of establishing a single party on the base of united political powers.

Responding to questions from reporters, Yatsenyuk noted: "I want to be very clear: single candidate, single faction and single party. And anyone who will go against this course will not come with us to victory."

In his turn, Tomenko who previously said that the parties that joined the United opposition in the elections do not plan to create a single structure, today told reporters that, in principle, the creation of a single party is a strategically correct idea. "I think that now there is a discrepancy in terms of the mechanisms of its creation. My approach and the approach of many of my colleagues, is that it cannot be a temporary project, like uniting before the elections, then sharing the quota and that's it," he said.

According to Tomenko, it should be a project for creating a major European political party. Such a project should be discussed in all Party organizations, with experts and Yulia Tymoshenko. "I do not see a possibility of realizing such project in one or two months," he added.
