According to the President, the work of the coalition was destroyed by the exit of three factions.

"My principal position is that we cannot continue waiting anymore. I appeal to all factions of the old coalition (I'm sure that there will be no other format, no other factions will be involved to date), drop their own ambitions and to hold a meeting of the coalition council this week to decide on the candidacy of the prime minister and to submit proposals on a nominee to the president," he said.
