KIEV, October 27. /TASS/. A draft coalition agreement for parties that are elected to the parliament after Sunday’s snap polls is due to be published later on Monday, the leader of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc said.

“Today, we will publish the draft coalition agreement,” Yuriy Lutsenko said.

President Poroshenko has recently launched talks with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, whose People’s Front leads the polls with 21.6% of the vote. The Petro Poroshenko Bloc is close behind with 21.52% of the vote, as of 12:00pm Moscow Time.

A meeting in a broader format is due to take place in the near future to be attended by representatives of “other democratic political forces,” namely the Svoboda (Freedom), the Samopomoshch (Self-Help) and Batkivshchyna parties.

“All the Maidan parties should be invited to create such a coalition,” Lutsenko said. Six parties have been elected to the parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. The Samopomoshch Party comes third with almost 11% of the vote. Experts say the new coalition could involve more than 300 lawmakers.
