Simferopol, December 23 (Interfax-Ukraine) - President Viktor Yuschenko has said that the current parliament should be dissolved, which will trigger the dismissal of the incumbent premier.
"Such a parliament deserves only one thing - dissolution, because there's no majority there, and there's no responsible prime minister who would lead this majority and make decisions, including the adoption of the budget, and answer how to finance the presidential election," he said in an interview with the Krym state television and radio company in Simferopol on Wednesday.
Yuschenko said that there is no budget resolution for next year in Ukraine for the first time in 18 years. "Nobody in Ukraine knows any macroeconomic figure, and what the [budget] deficit will be," he said, noting that the parliament does not have any draft state budget for 2010 submitted by the prime minister.
