Answering a reporter's question, the prime minister said he had told the president: "If I no longer satisfy you, form a new government." However, Yatseniuk stressed that the inability to form a new Cabinet of Ministers would lead to early elections.
"And meanwhile, there will be no one who could fulfill our vital credit agreements with the International Monetary Fund," the PM noted.
"I did my best to avoid the 2005 scenario when after the Orange Revolution, the democratic camp collapsed through internal competition," Yatseniuk remarked.
The prime minister emphasized that the president remains his partner: "We have many times made unpopular reform decisions together and I respect that."
