KIEV, October 29. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Wednesday his People’s Front party that won Sunday’s parliamentary elections needs to form a coalition to be called "European Ukraine."
“We are proposing a simple text. We have prepared all the decisions and laws that the new parliament needs to adopt,” Yatsenyuk said during a briefing.
Yatsenyuk described the Petro Poroshenko Bloc as a “strategic partner” in a future coalition, but at the same time said he wants three other parties — Batkivshchyna, Samopomoshch (Self-Help) and Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party — to join the coalition.
Yatsenyuk said he should be named Ukraine’s prime minister as his People’s Front party won Sunday’s parliamentary elections. “In line with the EU practice, the party that comes first needs to launch the process of forming the coalition,” Yatsenyuk told reporters during a press conference.
“I have announced these principles. If the coalition is formed on these principles, the leader of the first party will become a prime minister. If the coalition is established on other principles, there will be another basis and another prime minister,” he said.
