Lytvyn does not want to be the Speaker because "it destroys my own opinion"
Verkhovna Rada Chairman Volodymyr Lytvyn is not going to fight for his position after the parliamentary elections. This conclusion can be drawn from his statements.
Responding to the wish of a Facebook user to take over as the speaker of the new Council, Lytvyn said, "This chair imposes some obligations, while often deprives a person their own opinion and even personality. You do not belong to yourself. And today I have a huge responsibility to the electorate, which requires a different Modus Operandi."
When asked about his "political future", he replied: "Only work on the implementation of what people need. The campaign has taught me a lot. I think I will able to be engaged in scientific work more intensively."
