Ukraine opposition seeks elections by May 25

KIEV (Reuters) - The Ukrainian parliament must dismiss President Viktor Yanukovich and set early elections for no later than May 25, opposition leader Vitaly Klitschko said on Twitter on Saturday.

The opposition is asking lawmakers to adopt a resolution calling on Yanukovich to resign in the wake of a European Union-brokered accord to end days of carnage in the capital.
