Ukrainian president gives time until Oct 7 to form coalition

KYIV, October 4 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko will have consultations on Tuesday on whether to dismiss the parliament. The presidential press service cited him as saying this to reporters in the Khmelnitsky region.

The president said that he already had the right to dismiss the Supreme Rada. He said he realised that he had the full right to do it, but noted that he gave time until October 7 for political forces to legally formalise agreements to form a new coalition.

Yushchenko suggested that the existing inter-party agreements should be completed in a few days. Consultations planned for October 7 are a formal moment after which he will legally have the right to disband the parliament, he noted.
