Zelensky's envoy to parliament: Servant of the People Party ready to join coalition
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's envoy to the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, Ruslan Stefanchuk says the Servant of the People Party "would definitely like to take on the sole responsibility," but if this does not work, the party will consider proposals that will correspond to its plans and program.
"The priority for us is not in surnames, factions, parties and approaches, because we still do not know who will be in the new parliament," he told a Svoboda Slova [Freedom of Speech] panel show on Ukraine's ICTV channel.
According to Stefanchuk, the party agrees to form a coalition with political forces ready to unite around ideas.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's new President Volodymyr Zelensky on May 21 signed a decree disbanding the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament.
On May 23, the decree on the early termination of the powers of the Verkhovna Rada and the appointment of early elections on July 21, 2019 was published in the government's official newspaper Uriadovy Kurier.
