Ukraine needs PM with impeccable reputation: Abromavicius
Minister of Economic Development of Ukraine Aivaras Abromavicius, who earlier announced his resignation, said that the government should be headed by the current Finance Minister, Natalie Jaresko.
In his op-ed for Ukrainska Pravda online newspaper, Abromavicius wrote that Ukraine needs a technocratic government and the prime minister with an impeccable reputation.
"The obvious candidate that meets this requirement is Minister of Finance Natalie Jaresko. She might only be reproved for her American origin, but, as the experience of the Baltic States shows, it is rather a plus, than a minus," wrote Abromavicius.
He noted that in all three Baltic countries had presidents coming from the western diaspora, who have successfully worked for two consecutive terms.
