The three parties, which include Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna
(Fatherland), far-right nationalists and a liberal party headed
by boxing champion Vitaly Klitschko, made their call in a joint

disputed Oct. 28 election.

“the regime of Yanukovich”, raised the political temperature on
the eve of a possible resumption on Tuesday of a second trial of
Tymoshenko in the eastern city of Kharkiv.

the Regions seems set to hang on to a majority in the 450-seat
parliament – with the help of traditional allies – and it should
be able to hold the opposition at bay in the new parliament.
