It is impossible to create artificially the reasons and circumstances, which can lead the dissolution of the parliament, snap, in favor of party political interests, in favor of a particular group of people in the law-based state. Viktor Medvedchuk, the Chairman of Political Council of Opposition Platform for life Said that in his Big Interview, which will be broadcasted on 112 Ukraine TV channel on May 4 at 9:20 p.m.

“If we proceed from the interests of the state, country, then I think that the snap elections are impossible. It is unacceptable and I want to sincerely believe in the fact that we live in the law-based state. In the law-based state, it is impossible to create artificially the reasons and circumstances, which can lead the dissolution of the parliament, snap, in favor of party political interests, in favor of a particular group of people,” Medvedchuk said.

“They say that Zelensky is interested in the dissolution of the parliament to approach the elections. And his team, party Servant of the People should enter the parliament on the edge of support and high rating and high result at the presidential elections. Other people say: Poroshenko should urgently go to the snap elections because his rating is low and it can become even lower until the autumn. And that is why he should catch the last train to lock in the electorate and percent of the votes at least at this level at the possible elections because they can be even lower in autumn. Now, it is possible to get a prestigious level of support and bring sufficiently large faction into the parliament. Such version exists; it is discussed. But the first and the second variants are unacceptable if we talk about the law-based country. They should create artificially. The absence of the coalition can cause the dissolution of the parliament. But there is no coalition for two-three years. Everybody knows it. Then why these “wise guys” did not raise the issue that the parliament should be dissolved and why they did not warn about the absence of the coalition in a month before it? Create it or go to the elections. Why did they not do it? Is it in the interest of people? Politician said.

“No. because people are waiting for the first steps of Mr. Zelensky. They expect the decrease of the tariffs by 40%, according to the sociology held in a week before the second tour. People wait during 100 days and they will make claims. The decrease of the tariffs is the first thing; the abolition of the MPs immunity, the immunity of the judges, the president. The third thing is the beginning of the negotiations with Russia – 23%. The fourth is the fight against the wages of the TOP managers. There are the expectations of our citizens according to the sociological research. And president should think how to do it,” said Viktor Medvedchuk.
