The Party of Regions will soon hold a convention to determine their future plan of action, said PoR MP Serhiy Tigipko at a press briefing in the Parliament.
“Presidential elections will take place in three months and the party needs to get ready for it. The leadership of the party will not change for the time being. Yefremov is at the moment absent in the parliament, but we have no issues with the leadership of the faction,” said Tigipko.
He confirmed that in the last few days, during the clashes on the streets, 77 MPs left the parliamentary faction. “All others are staying, and the last one to leave will be Serhiy Tigipko,” he said.
