Cutting an Orange. Our Ukraine – People Self-Defence (OU-PSD) faction has been divided to pro-presidential and pro-coalitional parts.

While writing the headline of this post, I automatically added to the name of OU-PSD faction the word “presidential”. Then I deleted it as non-correct. The faction, consisting of 72 Members of Parliament, may not be called presidential anymore, despite of the fact of the recent election of Viktor Yushchenko as official Head of the Our Ukraine party. Only about a half of the faction may still be considered as supporters of Mr. Yushchenko as for today.

Not one, but two sittings of OU-PSD faction took place today at 10 AM. First sitting was held in the Secretariat of President (with his participation), and the second – in the building of Parliament. First sitting has agreed that the Parliament should work in the situational-majority-mode, and the second has approved a draft of the Coalition Treaty to unite officially with the Block of Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and the Block of Volodymyr Lytvyn.

The OU-PSD is divided in almost 50%-50% proportion.
