Ukraine's Supreme Court and parliament have met separately today (Tuesday) to work on a solution to a national crisis set off by a disputed presidential run-off election held November 21st.
The court began its session on Monday to consider allegations of widespread voter fraud raised by Viktor Yushchenko -- the West-leaning opposition presidential candidate. He has called for a new election. There is no indication when the court might make a ruling.
Pro-Moscow Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych now says he would agree to a new election, but only if neither he nor Mr. Yushchenko are candidates.
Ukraine's parliament has adjourned for the day, without a vote on a no-confidence motion against the prime minister's government. Debate is expected to continue tomorrow. Lawmakers also were discussing calls for autonomy in Mr. Yanukovych's native eastern region.
