KIEV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition has 60 days to answer President Viktor Yanukovich’s offer to enter a new cabinet, a parliamentarian from the ruling Party of Regions, Anatoly Bliznyuk, said on Thursday.
He recommended opposition factions to hasten their decision, recalling that the Party of Regions had a significant majority to approve a candidate for premiership on its own.
“Ukraine’s government together with the prime minister resigned,” Bliznyuk said. “Now under the law the president should submit during 60 days a new candidate for premiership to a vote. The sooner the opposition makes its mind, the faster a new cabinet will be formed. I am confident that Ukraine will not delay the formation of a new cabinet and nomination of a new prime minister longer than until the end of next week.”
Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich offered the position of prime minister to the head of the opposition party Batkivshchina (Fatherland) Arseny Yatsenyuk and the position of deputy prime minister for humanitarian issues to boxer-turned-politician, UDAR (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform) party leader Vitali Klitschko.
“There cannot be delays with making a decision on the formation of a new cabinet,” Bliznyuk said.
Former Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov offered to step down on January 28 to create “social and political compromise.”
