KIEV, April 12. /TASS/. The negotiations on the composition of the new Ukrainian government of Vladimir Groysman have been deadlocked, member of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) from Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc Sergei Leshchenko has said.
"Nothing is going to happen today. Groysman and the presidential administration argue over who will appoint the loyal ministers, "Leshchenko said.
Members of Petro Poroshenko Bloc say that the voting for Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s dismissal, the appointment of a new prime minister and government will take place on Thursday.
Lawmakers earlier said that the parliament would dismiss incumbent Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Tuesday and appoint Vladimir Groysman head of the government. Groysman is to be replaced by Andrei Parubiy (the People’s Front party), while Irina Gerashchenko (Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc) is to be appointed first vice speaker. The People’s Front agreed to vote to Yatsenyuk’s resignation only in a package with the appointment of a new prime minister, the coalition and the composition of the Cabinet.
The political crisis in Ukraine erupted after the Verkhovna Rada recognized the work of the current government unsatisfactory but failed to send Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to resignation. It actually provoked a split in the ruling coalition fraught with early parliamentary elections. The only remedy, according to the lawmakers, is to form a new coalition, overhaul the government and elect a new prime minister. After several months of debate and uncertainly, Yatsenyuk announced his resignation on April 10. On Monday leader of the Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc faction confirmed that a new coalition would be formed by the bloc involving only members of Yatsenyuk’s People Front and the unaffiliated parliamentarians who joined them.
