KIEV, September 11. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko said on Friday she had no plans to take reins of the cabinet of ministers in the future.

"I’m not interested in any positions whatsoever except for the job I came to do here at the Finance Ministry," the American-born former investment banker was quoted by the Levy Bereg publication.

She refrained from any further comments on the issue.

The Ukrainian publication Apostrof said earlier quoting a source at the Administration of President Pyotr Poroshenko that one of the options for reformatting the cabinet envisioned Jaresko’s appointment to the position of Prime Minister.

Under the same option, the former Georgian president turned Odessa region governor Mikhail Saakashvili would become a deputy prime minister in charge of supervision of the reforms and the Verkhovna Rada deputy Mikhail Kononenko, a man close to President Poroshenko, would be made First Deputy Prime Minister.

Poroshenko also admitted a possibility of a cabinet reshuffle to solve the problems the country is in the grips of. He said he would accept any decision that would taken by the cabinet, the ruling coalition and the Verkhovna Rada.

He also said he had discussed the issue with Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk. "It’s important to ensure joint efficacious cooperation," Poroshenko said.

Many Ukrainian experts have said more than once a cabinet reshuffle might be forthcoming. Their opinions were based on Yatsenyuk’s extremely low popularity ratings.

An opinion poll published on August 26 said 52% Ukrainians fully disapproved of his cabinet’s policies and another 32% said they much rather disapproved of them.
