Ukrainian ruling parliamentary coalition renamed as Alliance of National Unity
font size    

Ukraine's ruling parliamentary coalition decided Friday to change its name from the Anti-Crisis Alliance to the Alliance of National Unity.

The decision was made at a meeting of the governing coalition, formed by the Regional Party, the Communist Party and the Socialist Party. Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, leader of the Regional Party, attended the gathering.

Quoted by local media, Yanukovych said the Anti-Crisis Alliance had completed its mission and the renamed parliamentary majority would be devoted to working for national stability and development.

He said the new alliance now boasts 260 lawmakers in the 450-seat Supreme Soviet, including a number of defectors from the opposition camp.

The coordinator of the coalition told the press that ensuring national unity, unity among ethnic groups, and that of state policies are major tasks of the alliance.

The Regional Party won the most votes in the parliamentary elections in March 2006 and later formed a majority bloc, the Anti-Crisis Alliance, in parliament last July.
