The 5th Verkhovna Rada's composition was based upon the results of the inconclusive March 26, 2006 parliamentary election, a little over a year after the conclusion of the Orange Revolution. During the 2007 political crisis, President Viktor Yushchenko dissolved the parliament on April 2, 2007, forcing the subsequent snap election, which would decide the composition of the 6th and next convocation of parliament.
