Speaker: Elections in Kyiv may be held in spring of 2013
Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn believes that the election of Kyiv mayor may be held in spring of 2013.
Lytvyn said this during an online conference on Facebook on Friday.
According to the speaker, a decision about the mayoral election in the capital city will be taken after political consultations.
"As a matter of fact, the decision will be taken after coordination of political positions, since the value of the city, I believe, is in many ways comparable to the value of the Verkhovna Rada," Lytvyn said.
