MP from the Servant of the People parliamentary faction Roksolana Pidlasa has said First Deputy Chairman of the Servant of the People faction Oleksandr Korniyenko may become the successor of incumbent Chairman of the Servant of the People Party Dmytro Razumkov.
Pidlasa reiterated Razumkov should leave his post over his election as parliament speaker, according to the Ukrainian online news outlet Obozrevatel.
According to her, the faction is currently discussing possible candidates.
When asked whether Korniyenko could lead the Servant of the People Party, she said: "I do not exclude this possibility. I would even say this is the most likely option."
Pidlasa admitted she had not "heard" any other names except Korniyenko.
She said the issue would be finally decided at a party congress, which is scheduled for late October.
"[Chairman of the Servant of the People faction David] Arakhamia is the head of the faction, and he remains in office, no changes are expected here," the MP said.
