The candidacy of the Ukrainian Prime Minister will be determined during coalition talks, said leader of Petro Poroshenko’s Block Yury Lutsenko. According to him, it is possible that it will be the current head of the government Arseniy Yatseniuk.

Lutsenko noted that the talks will not only regard the Prime Minister’s candidacy, but reforms as well.

“It will depend on him (Yatseniuk – ed.) being agreeable to the universal reform plan. If he is, I don’t think there will be any problems,” Lutsenko noted.

One of the leaders of this party Andriy Parubiy expressed his surety that the leader of People’s Front Arseniy Yatseniuk will remain Prime Minister.

    Ukrainia must keep Yatseniuk as prime minister. He is not afraid of the russians sabotors of democracy !

    Yatseniuk must remain as PM. He has courage and he gives us hope that Ukrainian politics will be cleaned up. He’s also very westernized and will help bring the country up. Lysenko and Poroshenko need to stop playing politics with’s unacceptable and makes them less trustworthy to me. I will not send one more red dime to Ukraine if he’s not PM.

    I don’t see how Poroshenko could choose anyone else. Poroshenko’s Bloc did not poll much more than Yatseniuk’s, only about 1.7% more, that shows that the people of Ukraine think a lot of Yatseniuk. I think the problem will be if Yatseniuk will take the job, he has tried to leave more than once. I don’t know what the problem is between Poroshenko and Yatseniuk, but I think that there needs to be a meeting of the minds before Yatseniuk will stay on as PM. I hope they work out the problems, or what ever is causing the friction between them because I think both of them working together can save Ukraine.

    Take him out of the equation and UA is in deep trouble.
