“Tomorrow we will create a coalition of political parties that would consider the candidacy of the new Ukrainian prime minister submitted by the Popular Front, as was said before,” Volodymyr Hroisman, who heads a parliamentary group charged with preparations for the session, said at the group's meeting.
On November 21, representatives of five Ukrainian parties — the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, the People's Front party, headed by incumbent Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the Samopomich (Self-Help) party, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party and the Radical Party – signed a draft agreement on the creation of a coalition in the country's parliament.
Following the vote, Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk entered talks to form a "powerful democratic coalition" of pro-European parties in the Rada. All the parties that made it to the parliament, except for the Opposition Bloc, were invited to join the coalition.
Last week, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko confirmed that he would submit Yatsenyuk's candidacy for the post of the country's prime minister for parliament's approval as soon as possible.
