The head of BYuT fraction in city council Oleg MUDRAK commented on signing "Agreements... " to our correspondent:
- We created new working body. As the presidium isn't stated in the legislation, it didn't carry out regularly, during our activity he was brought together by only 3 times. Therefore we decided to give to presidium the status of interfractional council. What in it bad?
- In it, maybe, anything bad also isn't present. But after all it is known that before parties had polar moods.
- Before to us offered absolutely other actions. To us suggested to create the interfractional majority in the City Council. But about any majority couldn't be and speeches. We refused it unambiguously. There was a memorandum of majority creation, there was absolutely other text - that is it there were two parallel subjects.
And by interfractional council there can be a rational grain.
Heads of fractions created the council - that in it bad?
And fractions too voted for it.
- There are also other opinions. Some deputies declared that weren't going to subscribe under this agreement.
- If Chaika didn't want to collect presidium which isn't registered, and didn't bear for it any responsibility, we decided to adopt the agreement to solve topical city problems.
- But the agreement didn't adopt at session though in the official publication of the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies the return was specified. It turns out, what decisions of interfractional council have no validity?
- The agreement at session simply finished to data that such working body is created, for it didn't vote. And now we will simply make changes to regulations to give a lawful state to this interfractional council. On it heads of fractions quickly will discuss, say, such "loud" questions, and then to inform them on session. That's all.
