Yatseniuk rejects Poroshenko coalition deal text, proposes his own
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk, whose Popular Front Party is in the lead in the parliamentary election vote count, has said the party has rejected the coalition deal offered by the president’s Bloc of Poroshenko grouping.
Speaking to journalists in Kyiv on Wednesday, Yatseniuk said the Popular Front had prepared its own text of the coalition agreement.
He said the two-and-a-half page long text foresees the adoption of 36 laws by the end of the year.
He said that, in particular, talks were going on over the action plan of the government on the implementation of the Association Agreement EU-Ukraine.
Yatsenyuk also called on his potential coalition partners to agree to nominate Ukraine’s new government by November 3.
