ABU DHABI, November 26 (Itar-Tass) — A new Ukrainian government will be formed after the candidate for the post of prime minister has been determined, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said.
“When the candidate of prime minister is determined definitively, the formation of a new government will then certainly start,” Yanukovich said on moy, November 26, in the capital of the United Arab Emirates where he is on an official visit.
“I can’t give a 100 percent definitive answer now about how the government will be formed since negotiations on a parliamentary majority are still underway. We are looking for motives to create a broad-based majority in the parliament – the broader the coalition in the parliament, the better,” the president said.
However, he noted that “there no final answer to this question yet”.
The law does not require the government to resign after parliamentary elections. However many ministers from the Nikolai Azarov government were candidates to the parliament and were elected from the ruling Party of Regions.
Yanukovich said that all ministers who were elected to the parliament and who wish to work there will be able to do so. “Their wish will be satisfied,” he added.
