State secretary Oleg Rybachuk said this (Ukrainska Pravda, in Ukrainian):
It'd be very logical to propose Lutsenko [for the premier's post] - then there'll be order in Ukraine.
There's also Oleksandr Turchynov, but he is now busy with the election preparations.
Oleg Bilorus, head of Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc's parliamentary faction, announced their intention to create a coalition government that would work until the March 2006 parliamentary election. "There is no other way," he said (Korrespondent.net, in Russian). This temporary coalition government might be headed by Yulia Tymoshenko, according to Bilorus.
Both Rybachuk and Bilorus have alleged violations during today's vote.
Rybachuk said parliamentarians were offered cash in the bathrooms during the break - in exchange for a 'no' vote.
Rybachuk said representatives of SDPU(o) were hurt when he said in the morning that this was being done by them [esdeki]. "They came up to me and asked - why we alone? Well, not only they but those who are close to them as well," added Rybachuk.
Bilorus said that Yekhanurov received "fewer than 223 votes because cards of the parliamentarians who were not there were being used in the voting."
