Asked who is now profitable early elections, the MP said that this day say some political forces - "Opposition bloc" and the party "Motherland".

"These political forces are constantly told that" we need early parliamentary elections and it will pursue all means, including through "street", - said Krivenko.

She is a very problem, for the future of Ukraine. This will be like the recent US election, with Trump. She'll lie through her teeth, then setup everything possible to enrich herself. Almost every Ukrainian knows her bark reputation in the past. That's why in the last major election for president, she didn't make it anywhere near the votes Poroshenko had. Now her ratings are back up, as she used the Maidan stage in a wheelchair to get sympathy for herself. Now she's bashing Poroshenko as Trump did with Clinton. She did the same, back during the end of the Yushchenko tenure as president. Even (which I saw the document) agreed to share powers with Yanukovich back then, before the 2010 election. And STILL! Many Ukrainians are sucking up her propaganda.

Today I posted an article that Fitch ratings on Ukraine's economic future increased higher. Other ratings organizations have also recently increased Ukraine's ratings. Yesterday an article stated that many world top retailers will be docking in Ukraine's Odesa port that haven't in the past. That means for jobs to the region. More foreign investors have showed a lot of interest, doing business in Ukraine, more than before Poroshenko's tenure.

Same as in the US, MANY Ukrainians aren't aware or haven't bothered to look into the advances and accomplishments Ukraine has experienced, since Yanukovich left. Still too much propaganda getting the best of them like from Tymoshenko and NOW Saakashvili is throwing its hat in.

Reading daily, economic news about Ukraine, I've seen plenty of good happening in Ukraine, that many don't see, or think that it's more important to adhere to propaganda than to KNOW the facts of what's gong on in the country's economics.

We've seen what tragedy we in the US just went through, with our new president which I don't accept. I hope Ukrainians don't make the mistake again, as they did in 2010. Ukrainians deserve to know the facts, not fantasy.

Saakashvili Announces New Political Force, Calls for Early Ukraine Elections

Mikheil Saakashvili, a onetime Georgian president who resurrected his political career in nearby Ukraine, has announced the launch of a new Ukrainian political party and called for early elections just days after resigning his governor's post in Odesa.

Speaking to reporters in the Ukrainian capital on November 11, Saakashvili repeated accusations that rampant profiteering and obstacles to reform are hurting Ukraine, which remains divided two years after Russia seized Crimea and Moscow-backed separatists began fighting against Kyiv's authority.

"We will create a new broad political power, a platform of new forces, and our goal is to change the present, existing, so-called political elite, who are actually profiteers and social misfits," Saakashvili told a press conference.

"Our goal is for early parliamentary elections to be carried out as quickly as possible," Saakashvili said.

He again lashed out at Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, a former schoolmate whom Saakashvili accused of sabotaging reform efforts in the Black Sea port region when Saakashvili unexpectedly quit the Odesa governorship on November 7.

Poroshenko Challenged

.Saying he once refused Poroshenko's offer of the post of prime minister, Saakashvili vowed not to meet with the president again until the latter agreed to early elections.

He said working with the president's ruling Petro Poroshenko Bloc Solidarity party was out of the question.

"There will be no alliance with him or anyone else," Saakashvili said.

Poroshenko accepted Saakashvili's resignation earlier this week and suggested that the latter's political ambitions in Ukraine were stoked by a thumping that Saakashvili's former party received in Georgian elections last month.

Saakashvili, who now has Ukrainian citizenship, dared Poroshenko at his press conference to kick him out of the country.

Saakashvili -- whose reforms in post-communist Georgia following its so-called Rose Revolution in 2003 won widespread international praise -- said his new party would fight for Ukrainian business but oppose the presence of business representatives in politics.

He also said his party would refuse membership to anyone who has served in parliament for more than one term, which could exclude many in the political elite at the time of Ukraine's Euromaidan unrest in 2013-14.
