Tymoshenko's second try
Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko once again submitted the candidacy of Yulia Tymoshenko to prime minister, after the pro-Western coalition leader fell short by one vote Tuesday, the presidential press service said.
Tymoshenko, 47, was nominated for the post by a coalition of her eponymous party and the pro-presidential Our Ukraine bloc after the groups won a total of 227 seats in the September elections, one vote above the 226 votes required to form a majority in the 450-seat Rada. (rian.ru)
