KIEV, April 13. /TASS/. Deputies from the Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc faction in Ukraine’s parliament have reached consensus on the candidacies for prime minister and his government, faction leader Yuri Lutsenko wrote on his Facebook account on Wednesday.
"The candidate for premiership and the lineup of the government have been coordinated," he wrote.
The political crisis in Ukraine erupted after the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) voted the work of the current government unsatisfactory but was short of votes to send Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into resignation. It actually provoked a split in the ruling coalition fraught with early parliamentary elections.
After several months of debate and uncertainly, Yatsenyuk announced his resignation on April 10. Now, Rada is to form a constitutional majority in the parliament and elect the new prime minister and the government to help the country out of the political crisis.
