 "Poroshenko openly offered me position of prime minister and party leader," - Saakashvili

Former Odesa governor Mikheil Saakashvili says President Petro Poroshenko offered him the post of prime minister.

He said it in an interview with Korespondent weekly, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"Poroshenko openly offered me the position of prime minister and party leader and many other things. Well, what would happen if I were prime minister? I would have to run after some Honcharenko [Poroshenko's bloc MP - ed.] and ask him to vote for my law. There are 400 Honcharenkos there [in the parliament - ed.]," he said.

Saakashvili claims he offered Poroshenko to hold early elections, but the situation was rigged in April.

"Avakov remained minister and a People's Front member was appointed deputy prosecutor general [Dmytro Storozhuk - ed.] so as to block potential cases against Yatseniuk," the ex-governor remarked.

Saakashvili believes that early parliamentary elections will refresh the government by 90 percent.

He said that the Hvylia political party could be created depending on whether early elections will take place.
