The following day, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government survived a no-confidence vote, which provoked various factions to leave the ruling parliamentary coalition. Another vote of no-confidence cannot be held until the next parliamentary session, scheduled to open on September 6. Parliamentary factions have since began talks on forming a new coalition.
"The 12th extraordinary congress of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc "Solidarity" party insists of the resignation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine…the congress supports Yuriy Lutsenko's proposal to put Vladimir Groysman forward for the post of the prime minister of Ukraine and calls on the Petro Poroshenko Bloc party to consider this candidacy as well as the composition of the new cabinet of ministers," the party's congress resolution said, quoted in a press release.
"We call on all democratic forces to immediately create a new parliamentary coalition and declare a program of action and take on a common responsibility for forming a new government," the Poroshenko Bloc's statement said.
The Ukrainian Constitution stipulates that the president can dismiss the parliament and hold snap elections if no ruling coalition is formed within 30 days.
