You're reading: Agenda for democratic opposition

The slide of democracy and disintegration of the civil society during the two years of President Viktor Yanukovych’s regime is the wrong time for meticulous planning of reforms or a constitutional revamp by the democratic opposition — to be carried out “by the next president.” The latter would have to wait until the presidential election in 2015.

By that time there may be no opposition, as wryly noted in The Ukrainian Weekly in New Jersey (editorial May 20). With that perspective, excessive indulgence in projected lawmaking can be a useless distraction.

Even the best layout of good intentions by the democratic camp cannot save the country at this juncture, in the face of staunch resolve of the Party of Regions and Yanukovych not to give up power under any circumstances.
