"Today, the president is meeting with the leaders of the [political] factions, in particular, currently — with leader of the Samopomich Andriy Sadovy. The purpose of all of the president's meetings with the political leaders is to accelerate the exiting from the political crisis. It's clear to everyone that a new coalition is needed to form a new government. There are three scenarios: a technocratic government (headed by Natalie Jaresko). Where all the pro-European factions are united around a technocratic government. A political government (for example, headed by Andriy Sadovy)," Svyatoslav Tsegolko wrote on Facebook.
The aim of the government, as was the case of the outgoing one, was to speed up the pace of reforms, he noted.
"If the parliamentary forces have other candidates, let them suggest [their options] and find 226 votes in the Verkhovna Rada [Ukraine’s parliament]. The president is ready to work with any candidate proposed by the coalition," Tsegolko added.
The following day, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government survived a no-confidence vote, which forced various factions to leave the ruling parliamentary coalition. The next such vote is allowed no earlier than the next parliamentary session, scheduled to open on September 6.
The Ukrainian Constitution stipulates that the president may dismiss the parliament and hold snap elections if no ruling coalition is formed within 30 days.
