 New coalition not to be formed this week, Hroisman says

The negotiations to form a coalition of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB), People’s Front and Batkivshchyna are now underway. It is not going to happen this week.

Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Hroisman said in an exclusive comment to 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.

Asked whether the parliament will have enough time to find the way out of the political and government crisis this week, Hroisman said, "I think this question should be directed not to the parliament, but the coalition."

"Negotiations on creation of coalition of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB), People's Front, and Batkivshchyna factions, as well as principles able to unite these factions into a coalition are now underway. Obviously, it is not going to happen this week. But I would like to stress that it is critical not just to form a coalition, to form a government, it is necessary to define the principles against which the coalition will operate, new government will be formed, what program will be adopted under the coalition agreement. These are the issues to be solved since creation of something allowing doing nothing is the easiest task and the tradition of the Ukrainian politics," the Verkhovna Rada speaker said.
