As reported by Censor.NET, Petro Poroshenko Block MP Iryna Lutsenko said it on air of 5 Channel.
"To date, as far as I can judge by the latest data, the future coalition [comprised of PPB and People's Front factions - ed.] already has 226-228 votes. I hope that this process will end next week. Non-affiliated deputies who quit or were excluded from other factions, or who did not belong to any faction being elected in single-member districts, and who, by the way, voted with the old coalition, will form an additional number of deputies that will join either PPB or People's front," she said.
According to Lutsenko, PPB believes that MPs from other political forces "will demonstrate their public stance," and the new coalition will see more than two factions.
"This does not mean that the doors are closed. We offer Batkivshchyna and Samopomich to join in, we meet with them all the time as well as with radicals [Radical Party - ed.]. We urge everyone who wants to bear responsibility for their country, who does not want to unbalance it, who does not want to push it to snap elections, to unite with us.
"There is much work to do, and the action plan is ready. We hope that the deputies will demonstrate their public stance and the coalition will be comprised of more than two factions. But of course, if this does not happen, if there will be further talks about early elections, the new coalition will be formed of two factions," the MP remarked.
