KIEV, January 17. /TASS/. The coalition in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) is looking at replacing a number of ministers in the Arseniy Yatsenyuk government, Rada speaker Vladimir Groisman said on Sunday.
"Such consultations are underway. I believe there are a number of ministers we have questions to from the point of view of their professionalism and commitment to the job they have been commissioned to by the Ukrainian parliament," he said in an interview with the Espresso TV channel.
"Such reshuffles [in the government] will be obvious and they will take place" after the consultations, he noted, adding however government reshuffles should not be a task in itself for the lawmakers. "The goal is to see to it that those who come to replace them are professional enough and have their own viewpoint on what they must do to change the situation in Ukraine," the speaker stressed.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said he did not rule out government reshuffles this year. He said the parliamentary coalition would have a "very serious discussion." "I want the coalition to have a consolidated position. The issue of forming a government can be looked at only after it is discussed by the coalition. All I can do is to rceive proposals," he said.
