The 5th Verkhovna Rada's composition was based upon the results of the inconclusive March 26, 2006 parliamentary election,[1] 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,[2][3] forcing the subsequent snap election, which would decide the composition of the 6th and next convocation of parliament.
