Ukraine to forge new parliament

Supreme Rada deputies in Ukraine are meeting to forge a new parliament. They will map the shape of parliamentary committees and on Thursday, are expected to vote on who takes the post of prime minister.

That vote is likely to confirm Yuliya Timoshenko in the role, after three months of coalition talks. Timoshenko was dismissed from the job by President Viktor Yushenko nine months ago.
