Ukraine's former Orange Revolution allies call for new round of coalition talks on Monday

(AP) Ukraine's estranged Orange Revolution allies called Friday for a new round of coalition talks to begin urgently next week, their parties said.
"The process should begin already from Monday," said President Viktor Yushchenko's party, Our Ukraine.
The call came a day after Our Ukraine said it supported forming a coalition with its estranged ally, Yulia Tymoshenko, and the Socialists, but refused to immediately cede to Tymoshenko's demand that the premiership be returned to her.
Ukraine's March 26 parliamentary election ended with no party winning a majority, forcing the parties into coalition talks.
