You're reading: Tomenko: Batkivschyna not planning to change its leader Tymoshenko

The Batkivschyna All-Ukrainian Union is not planning to replace its leader, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, and unite with other parties, Deputy Parliament Speaker and Deputy Head of the Batkivschyna All-Ukrainian Union Mykola Tomenko has said

“As deputy leader of the Batkivschyna All-Ukrainian Union, I would
like to inform you that the party has not made a decision to unite with
other political parties who participated in the elections along with us,
or to create a single party. I did not see such a decision,” he said at
a briefing on Tuesday, when asked whether Batkivschyna will create a
single party with other parties that were included in the Batkivschyna
United Opposition.

“And, most importantly, I think it would be wrong, now and in future,
to change the leader of the Batkivschyna Party, Yulia Tymoshenko. The
Batkivschyna Party [is not] preparing a decision to dismiss Tymoshenko
as party leader and appoint someone else to this post,” he said.

Tymoshenko has headed Batkivschyna since December 1999.
