Ruslan Stefanchuk, who is currently the president's envoy in parliament, will be appointed deputy speaker, future MP from the Servant of the People Party David Arakhamia told the Obozrevatel news portal.

"I think Dmytro Razumkov will become [parliament speaker]. He is the most worthy candidate. Well, he is now afraid of jinxing it, but there will be at least 250 votes for him in the hall," Arakhamia said.

The No. 4 candidate on the Servant of the People Party's list for parliament, Ruslan Stefanchuk, will probably take the post of deputy parliament speaker rather than head the parliamentary faction, which was written in the media before.

"Most likely, he will be deputy speaker, he is close to legislative work, and coordination work is required there," Arakhamia said.

The politician also confirmed there were two candidates for the position of the head of the Servant of the People Party's faction in parliament: Arakhamia himself and Oleksandr Korniyenko, who headed the party's election campaign headquarters.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Servant of the People Party said they wanted to see a technocrat and economist as Prime Minister of Ukraine. At the same time they admit not everyone might like their nominee for prime minister.
