“Coalition consultations will be kicked off tomorrow not to waste time,” he said. “Ten days will be more than enough to finish consultations on both the prime minister, and the speaker, and the cabinet.” However he refused to elaborate on who would be the new prime minister.A deputy director general of the Russian Center for Political Situational Analysis, said on Sunday the Ukrainian president will have little chance to form a coalition on the basis of his party if final results of the election are close to those of the exit polls.
"We see that Oleksandr Turchynov’s and Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front has won more votes than expected,” Ignatov noted. “So, it looks like Yatsenyuk will continue as prime minister to conduct a policy independent from the president. And whereas until now, Poroshenko has tended for a not very tough format of relations with Russia and Ukraine’s eastern regions, now it will be next to impossible for him, for he will have to reckon with advocates of a more harsh scenario, the more so as other pro-war parties, such as Samopomoshch, the Radical Party and Svoboda, are winning high support."
