KIEV, May 12 (RIA Novosti) - A working group set up to resolve a political standoff in Ukraine has agreed on a preliminary package of amendments required to hold early parliamentary elections, a senior government official said.

"The drafted laws have been endorsed by all political parties and representatives of both the president and prime minister," Mykola Azarov, the first deputy prime minister, said after a meeting with President Viktor Yushchenko.

The two people at the core of the six-week political wrangling, Yushchenko and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, stroke a deal May 4 to hold parliamentary early elections but the date of the polls still remains to be decided.
