Zelensky in favor of dissolving Ukraine's parliament if elected president, but only within legal framework
Ukrainian presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelensky has commented on whether he intends to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, if elected president.
Zelensky is aware of the fact that the law provides for a short timeframe for such a move.
"I am afraid I won't have enough time. I will not be breaking the law. If we succeed in six months before the next [parliamentary] election when we have the right to dissolve parliament...," he said in an interview with RBC-Ukraine, UNIAN reports.
To the journalist's clarifying question whether he would dissolve the parliament if he had enough time, Zelensky said: "We'll consider this, yes. You understand it's in our interest."
