FALL-OUT CONTINUES - PRESIDENT CALLS FRESH ELECTION

Ukraine
09.10.08



Final risk? President disbands Verkhovna Rada


Ukraine`s President Viktor Yushchenko has called a snap election to take place on 7 December after dissolving the Ukrainian parliament on Wednesday evening. 

The move means that Ukrainians will now go to the polls for the third time in three years following the collapse of the pro-Western coalition collation (Our Ukraine and Bloc Tymoshenko).

It is likely to throw the country into further turmoil as the bitter feud between Yushchenko and Tymoshenko continues to escalate.
