President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko does not rule out that Yulia Tymoshenko may occupy the post of the Prime Minister of Ukraine till the year 2010, when the regular presidential election is scheduled in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian President said this in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday.

Victor Yushchenko spoke for preserving the democratic coalition.

“I would like very much that it [the government and the coalition] continue its operation, but the coalition is kept together by the sole thing – the unity of priorities. It is destroyed by subjective priorities and is consolidated by national interests. I regret that national interests are of minor importance for a certain part of the coalition”, the President said.

At the same time he stressed he would like to improve these relations.
