Coalition of Carcasses Confirms Azarov as PM

The Coalition of Stabilnist and Reform (aka the Coalition of Carcasses) Thursday confirmed Mykola Azarov, a Party of Regions stalwart, as PM.





The Coalition totals 235 MPs and owes its unofficial name to recently amended rules of order that base coalitions on MPs, not factions.

Coalition breakdown:

Party of Regions
Communist Party
Lytvyn Bloc

BYuT: Vitaliy Barvinenko, Volodymyr Kapliyenko, Hennadiy Zadyrko, Hryhoriy Omelchenko, Yuriy Poluneyev, Ihor savchenko, Oleh Cherpitsky

NUNS: Yuriy But, Stanislav Dovhy, Oleksandr Omelchenko, Ihor Palytsya, Ivan Plyushch, Volodymyr Polyachenko

Non-aligned (renegades/castaways): Taras Chornovil, Inna Bohoslovska, Ihor Rybakov, Vasyl Kiselyov

Azarov gathered 242 votes, including 8 from BYuT and 11 from NUNS.

BYuT: Vitaliy Barvinenko, Andriy Verevsky, Volodymyr Kapliyenko, Hennadiy Zadyrko, Hryhoriy Omelchenko, Yuriy Polyneyev, Ihor Savchenko, Oleh Chepitsky

NUNS: Yuriy But, Stanislav Dovhy, Davyd Zhvaniya, Ivan Plyushch, Volodymyr Polyachenko, Viktor Shemchuk, Serhiy Vasylenko, Oleksandr Klymenko, Oleksandr Omelchenko, Ihor Palytsya, Oleksandr Slobodyan

Non-aligned (renegades/castaways): Taras Chornovil, Inna Bohoslovska, Ihor Rybakov, Vasyl Kiselyov

Not only does this creative arrangement violate a 2008 ruling by the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, but it also violates President Yanukovych’s oath of office.

Back-to-opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko has promised to take her case to the Constitutional Court.

As of 12:33 Kyiv time, Cabinet members are being confirmed.

In Hungary we had a change in last April, when the government of experts started working to save us from state bankruptcy.
Well, I have always been considered a very conservative person, on the other hand I was always a mediator type. For example I have a Chinese communist friend (former classmate), a Russian communist friend and I am living in a semi-capitalist state. We could always cooperate well. I am going to be an economist so we will see what I will do. Maybe I find out a new thing. :P

In Hungary we call non-aligned politicians independents but these two words mean almost the same thing.
