KIEV, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Ukraine's parliamentary speaker told deputies on Sunday to agree on the formation of a national unity government by Tuesday.

"This is a priority task," the speaker, Oleksander Turchinov, said in parliament.

He said discussions on the new government should begin immediately, one day after the chamber voted to oust President Viktor Yanukovich and two days after an agreement was reached with Yanukovich on the need to form a national unity government.
