    The Ukrainian parliament’s the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, the People's Front party and the Batkivshchyna parties have agreed to create a new coalition, Radical Party head Oleh Lyashko said.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – According to the politician, these factions will support current Verkhovna Rada Chairman Vladimir Groysman’s candidacy for new prime minister.

    "I have just left the president’s office where a meeting of heads of factions took place. The results of this meeting… the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, the People's Front and Batkivshchyna have agreed to announce the creation of a new coalition in the parliament [on Tuesday]," Lyashko wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.

    На жаль, це не бажана українцями радикальна зміна економічного курсу влади, а черговий перерозподіл влади. Ми лишаємось в опозиції і продовжимо відстоювати права українців, як робили це завжди

    Ukraine’s parliament is currently in crisis, threatened by the de-facto collapse of its ruling coalition. On February 15, the Petro Poroshenko Bloc described the cabinet’s work in 2015 as unsatisfactory.

    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.
