On the same day EU officials described Ukraine’s elections as “marred by irregularities” and having a “lack of transparency”, United Opposition says it will now focus on impeaching the country’s president Viktor Yanukovich.
Criticism of the October 28 poll comes from a statement issued by EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele.
United Opposition, which is made up of separate political parties, has warily accepted disputed results that will probably see Yanukovich’s party maintain a majority.
The group says it will go to parliament and demand the impeachment of the president, the resignation of the government and release of the political prisoners.
“We clearly stated that we will keep all options open in our fight – parliamentary and non-parliamentary – and we do not exclude the possibility of dissolving Ukraine’s parliament,” said Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a leader of the United Opposition.
In addition to working towards freeing her, United Opposition is urging jailed former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko to end her 15-day hunger strike mounted in protest of October’s election.
