KIEV, April 13. /TASS/. Ukraine's Petro Poroshenko Bloc has come to a unified position on the candidates for the posts of ministers in the new Ukrainian government, the country's Parliament Speaker Vladimir Groysman seen as the potential prime minister said on Wednesday.
"Today there is an agreed format [of Ukraine’s cabinet of ministers] that should be supported," Groysman said in a video posted on his Facebook page.
"I think today there will be a discussion of the Verkhovna Rada MPs and there will be a possibility to have a meeting of the coalition to hold the vote on setting up a new government, approving the program of actions, replacing the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada and moving forward," the speaker said.
The official assured that the government that he plans to head "should stabilize the situation in the country and continue carrying out successful reforms." The government will be ready to bear the responsibility for the situation in the country, he said.
He also said there is a need for the support of two factions of the parliament - the Petro Poroshenko Bloc and the People’s Front of Arseniy Yatsenyuk - for the new government to start working.
Leader of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction in Ukraine’s parliament Yuri Lutsenko said earlier on Wednesday that the MPs of the faction have reached consensus on the candidates for prime minister and his government.
Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced his resignation on April 10 after several months of debate and uncertainly. 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 two-months-long political crisis.
