He said this during his report in the Verkhovna Rada on Friday, Censor.NET reports.
During the Q&A session, Petro Poroshenko Bloc MP Mustafa Nayyem resented that People's Front faction [PM's party - ed.] would not support the Cabinet's resignation.
"I realize that everyone is a prisoner of your ambitions and the faction's ambitions. Maybe there is some other option, some other person from the People's Front who is able to lead the government. And who will be trusted more," Nayyem said.
The PM responded: "I would like to be honest with you - when I assumed this office 21 months ago, I took the responsibility for the most unpopular steps in this country that haven't been done in 20 years. No one did them. When I was assuming this office, I knew what would happen to my rating.
"I came here not for my personal political rating, but to conduct reforms and gain the rating for the country. You are authorized by the Constitution to put the resignation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to vote. Put and vote. I will accept the decision by the Ukrainian parliament. I am not clinging to this office," Yatseniuk said, the words followed by a round of deputies' applause.
