"We will support the candidacy of Groysman," he told journalists.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on March 24, the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko parliamentary faction nominated Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Groysman for prime minister.

In turn, Groysman said that he was ready to take responsibility and lead the government if his nomination was supported by a future coalition in parliament.

The People's Front party headed by the current Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk also promised to consider the candidacy of Groysman for premiership. Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy's Samopomich party in turn announced the conditions under which their faction will vote for a new prime minister.
