According to sources of Censor.NET that are close to the negotiations on creation of the new coalition for the Cabinet of Volodymyr Hroisman, the composition of the government as of April 5 is as follows: the parliamentary coalitions is composed of two factions, Petro Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front, the total number of MPs is 227-228.
This was announced by Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov on his Facebook page.
The Radical Party is demanding the post of the Rada speaker for its leader Oleh Liashko, which is opposed by PPB and People's Front. They propose that Liashko considers other options. So as of now, the Radical Party is not seen as a member of the coalition. Samopomich is also outside of the new coalition. Negotiations with Batkivshchyna continue - however, neither PPB nor PF are sure that they should be giving away the post of ecology minister to Batkivshchyna.
