KIEV, November 6. /TASS/. A coalition agreement in the Ukrainian parliament, Verkhovna Rada, may be signed in about a month from now, Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, one of the leaders of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, said at Thursday’s meeting with representatives of the European Business Association.
Asked when a coalition agreement might be concluded, he replied that “there is still some time before the first session of parliament.”
“In reality, this may happen on December 1. In other words, we have time to create a fundamental plan and, once the coalition is up and running and the parliament has met in first session, to create a government that will be working according to that plan,” Groisman said.
He said the Petro Poroshenko Bloc was prepared to team up with Popular Front, Samopomich (Self-Help) and Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party.
“We are open to the idea of a coalition of five political forces which have vowed their allegiance to our country’s democratic development and integration with the EU,” he said.
Groysman said that his party was considering a future coalition agreement “as an action plan, a list of pledges we shall make to Ukraine, the people and the government.”
Ukraine on October 26 held early parliamentary elections. The Popular Front party led by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk emerged as the winner. The pro-presidential Petro Poroshenko Bloc placed second and Samopomich (Self-Help) came in third. Other parties that have entered parliament are the Opposition Bloc, former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna and Oleh Lyashko’s Radical Party. When the early election returns were announced, some parliamentary parties declared the intention to create a coalition.
