The idle
parliamentarians who arrived en masse to their workplace on Feb. 20
wondered around corridors and chatted.

The
blockade of parliament, initiated by the opposition to demand
personal voting by all deputies, has been dragging on for 15 days, or
from the day the parliament was scheduled to convene for a session.
Vitali Klitschko’s Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms (UDAR)
Party have been sleeping in parliament to prevent the Party of
Regions from breaking the blockade.

If
parliament fails to convene for 30 days, the president will get legal
grounds to dismiss it and call a re-election.
