KIEV, April 14. /TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, approved at the third attempt on Thursday a program of the country’s new government proposed by Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman.
A total of 243 MPs voted in favor of the program, above the required minimum of 226 votes. The parliament had refused to endorse it twice earlier in the day.
Groysman’s cabinet has obtained a year-long immunity from dissolution.
Speaking on his program, Groysman said it is based on a coalition agreement. The newly-elected premier promised to present a step-by-step action plan of the cabinet in the near future.
Groysman said "the efficient management and restoration of trust for authorities" are the priorities of his work. The government is expected to unveil a clear anti-crisis plan within a month.
Earlier on Thursday, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada voted to appoint Groysman as the new prime minister and also approved the cabinet of ministers.
