"The parliament should have a coalition which should have a majority. Three factions have quit the coalition. And, according to our Constitution, either a new coalition has to be formed with most probably a new prime minister, or we are faced with early parliamentary elections. My presidential position, and only the president may call early parliamentary elections, is - never!" Poroshenko said.

He stressed that the political forces inside the Rada should find a way out of this situation. "But this is parliament's responsibility, it should find a solution: either restore the old coalition, and I'll be happy to work with any prime minister, or create a new coalition and offer another prime minister. I can take any offer of the parliament," the head of state noted.
