"The main thing is to have no delays in reforms. It is very important not to waste time [on adopting] constitutional amendments, as today the coalition has 300 votes. We must use this consolidation and vote as soon as possible on the corresponding constitutional amendments," he said.

Under Ukraine’s current constitution, amendments to the constitution must be supported by a constitutional majority in parliament of no less than 300 MPs. The current coalition has 305 members.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, appointed the new Cabinet of Ministers on Tuesday evening.

A total of 288 MPs out of 339 voting in parliament approved a resolution on the membership of Ukraine’s new Cabinet of Ministers.
