Viktor Medvedchuk, the head of the political council of Opposition Platform - For Life party is not going to lay any claims to the post of Vice Speaker of the new convocation of the Ukrainian Parliament. Co-head of Opposition Platform-For Life Vadym Rabinovych said so, commenting on the latest rumors regarding this question.
"We'll talk this through if they offer us... I can tell you this much: I already discussed this with Viktor Medvedchuk, and the head of the political council of our party will not take the seat in the Parliament's presidium; he will focus on the work in the party. Besides, Viktor Medvedchuk already had some experience working as the First Vice-Speaker and the Vice-Speaker. This is he will not set out for this office; party-related work is the priority for him right now", Rabinovych stated.
At that, he added that there are many decent candidacies in this political force. "(...) Let the current government pass the test for democracy, offers the true opposition some control functions, and we'll offer decent worthy candidates for the offered offices", the MP concluded.
