Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Lytvyn believes that the Party of Regions will increase its presence in the new Ukrainian parliament and Vitali Klitschko's UDAR party will be the only new political force in the parliament.

"Only one new political force UDAR will get seats in the parliament. The Regions Party will increase its presence in the parliament including at the expense of MPs elected in single-seat constituencies. The opposition will reduce its presence," Lytvyn wrote on his Facebook page during an online conference on Friday.

The speaker stressed that such alignment of forces in the next parliament "does not mean that the situation in the parliament will be comfortable."

Lytvyn, the spineless sop, is campaigning for the PoR.

He is bought and paid for by them.

Looks to me like the only way out of this mess is for people to NOT vote for PoR or commies.

It's a lot easier than civil war.

How does that sound to you?

Ahh, yes, another brave keyboard pounder. You want civil war, why don't you come here and start it? Or don't you have the stones to stand and fight for what you believe?

Elmer is correct. Lytvyn is a spineless sop. He is also a lizard of the chameleon variety. His ability to constantly change colors with great frequency has turned him into a political joke in that it is impossible to predict who he supports on a day to day basis. One day he predicts that his Party will do well in single member contituencies (including himself) and the next day it is the POR that will be victorious. It is also more than obvious that he has totally disregarded the stream of continuous recent polls that have shown a steady decline in the support of Yanukovych and his Party of Dupas. All of this can only lead to the conclusion that Volodya holds no credibility.

Lytvn will mos likely lose representation. His ly chance of retaining a seat. Ten Parliamnet is if he is able to secure the support of one of the major parties. There is an outside chance that he could win a single member constituency but overall his party will lose representation.

Analysis of the 2010 first round Presidential ballot. Will determine Lytvns chances of success.

There will be Four paries returned in the new Parliament and a few independent single member constituencies representatives. B.ock Lytv will it pass the 5% representation threshold

Part of Zregions, The opposition unity party the Communists and UDAR will be the only main parties. Supporters of minor parties and candidates will be disenfranchised, their vote wasted.
