KIEV - Ukraine's opposition is to seek parliamentary support on Saturday for a resolution calling on President Viktor Yanukovich to resign, an opposition spokeswoman said.

"We will submit the resolution with the demand for Yanukovich to resign," Oksana Zinoviyeva, a spokeswoman for the 'Udar' party of Vitaly Klitschko, told Reuters. "It will allow the parliament to set the date for early elections," she said.

Klitschko told crowds on Kiev's Independence Square that he would seek support from lawmakers "to get rid of" Yanukovich, who was due to visit the northeastern city of Kharkiv on Saturday.
