Yushchenko dissolves Ukraine parliament

Viktor Yushchenko, the president of Ukrain, signed on Monday an order to dissolve the parliament and called early elections.

Yushchenko, who acted after more seven hours of talks with parliamentary leaders failed, accused the parliamentary majority led by Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych of seeking to expand its power base in violation of the Constitution, and of making decisions that violated the law.
