Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced five principles by which a government team is ready to continue to work. He said this in the program «10 minutes with Prime Minister», reports the Department of information and communication of the Secretariat of the Cabinet.
Yatsenyuk called on politicians not to frighten the government to resign
The first principle is the absence of political pressure and political corruption.
«Every Minister who appointed the coalition government, bear full responsibility for their region and for the policy which he defines in the industry. None of the political figures or no businessman, which has its own interests, has no right to put pressure on the Minister and force him to make decisions that contradict the policy of the Minister and the interests of the Ukrainian state», — said Yatsenyuk.
«No more political quotas in government bodies and management. There are no political and business interests in the management of state companies and state banks,» he added.
The second principle is «absolute intolerance of corruption — both political and economic».
«Any appointment in public company will be made exclusively through an independent nominating Committee. And 60 largest public companies will have new and independent managers. Independent of political factions and parties and from business groups and business elites,» he said.
However, he stressed that in 2016 in Ukraine should begin an honest and transparent privatization.
«Privatization needs to be set Odessa port plant, the company «Centrenergo» other energy companies», — he said.
«The Parliament should pass a law that gives you the opportunity to a strategic investor at an open fair and transparent competition to acquire government facilities with the aim to attract foreign investment, create new jobs, modernize the Ukrainian economy and to relieve public companies from political influence and status of nurses for different political parties and forces», — said Yatsenyuk.
The third principle, he said, is the principle of «full transparency of activity of heads of Executive authorities, local self-government and people’s deputies of Ukraine».
Yatsenyuk noted that the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will be broadcasted live.
«We must overcome the telephone right and any attempt to shadow agreements behind the scenes transparent Ukrainian policy», — stressed the head of government.
For this purpose, said Yatsenyuk, the Cabinet of Ministers takes a decision on the introduction of a Code of ethical conduct for public servant and submit to the Parliament a Code of integrity politician.
«These solutions provide a bound record of all meetings and negotiations of political figures and heads of state authorities in Ukraine,» he said.
The fourth principle is the principle of responsibility.
The head of government noted that the Cabinet of Ministers, according to the Constitution, accountable to and controlled by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
«This means that the government performs its part as the Executive branch. But the Ukrainian Parliament voted for those laws which are necessary for carrying out reforms in the country and trusted the government that he formed. And helps the government to change the country and to implement the right solution for the Ukrainian state», — said Yatsenyuk.
The fifth principle, he said, is the principle of separation of powers.
«The President of Ukraine is the head of the Ukrainian state. And the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine is responsible to the President,» he said.
Yatsenyuk called on politicians not to frighten the government to resign
Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk called on politicians not to frighten the government to resign and said that the Cabinet of Ministers will not stop halfway in implementing reforms.
Yatsenyuk stressed that the political debate about the need to change the Cabinet of Ministers continues, «from day one, when this government was sworn in».
He stressed that the President and people’s deputies have the right to submit to the Parliament a resolution on expression of no confidence in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
«If any of our politicians believes that the government runs the program and does not reform, it means that Parliament can make 150 votes a resolution of no confidence in the government and vote the appropriate resignation», — said Yatsenyuk.
However, he urged politicians not to frighten the government to resign.
«But stop trying to scare us retirement. We come here to work for real change in the country. And now it is not about personalities, but about the specific value of things. The program on economic stabilization of the situation in the country and political stability in the Ukrainian state.
In the struggle for power and the place of bread, some politicians have forgotten that Ukraine is in a state of war that was declared by Russia that we have not yet overcome the economic crisis, and that people expect a real change in the country», — stressed the head of government.
«My team and I will not stop half way in implementing reforms. That is why the Ukrainian Ministers decided to go back to the government in order to carry out these changes in the country on those principles which have just been uttered. If someone else has an alternative program, or he does not share those principles, which were proclaimed, take responsibility for yourself. But we will continue to go this way. By building a strong, sovereign European Ukraine», — said Yatsenyuk.
We will remind, the Minister of economic development and trade of Ukraine aivaras abromavicius said on 3 February that leaves from a post. The reason is a conflict with the Deputy head of the faction PPO Igor Kononenko, whom journalists called the «envoys» or «purse» of the President. The next day held an emergency Cabinet meeting, at which four Ministers withdrew their resignation. However, Abromavicius said that is not going to change his decision about leaving the Cabinet.
The evening of February 4, the Cabinet met in an extraordinary meeting. At the meeting of the four Ministers said they are ready to withdraw the resignation. The Minister of agrarian policy and food of Ukraine Oleksiy Pavlenko, the Minister of information policy Yury stets, as well as the head of Ministry of health Alexander Kvitashvili said that withdrawing my resignation. While Abromavicius to withdraw his application refused.
Before that, acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Petro Poroshenko and the speaker of Parliament Vladimir Groisman met with the ambassadors of the countries of G7 ucenic, who called them to prevent the «Moldovan version», to preserve the unity and dispositive power, and to stay the course of reforms.
Acute government crisis caused by the desire of all members of the ruling parliamentary coalition «European Ukraine» parties (except the Prime Minister’s «people’s front») update the personal composition of the Cabinet of Ministers.
As stated by the head of the faction Block Petro Poroshenko, MP Yuriy Lutsenko, there are two ways out of this situation: a complete change of government after the early elections to the Verkhovna Rada (in the interests of the «Samopomochi», «Batkivshchyna» and Radical party) and partial «reformatting» of the government in a targeted manner (supported PPB).
More re-election not interested «popular front» has called their conduct so that he would play «into the hands of the Kremlin.» According to sociologists, the rating of trust of voters to «NF» may prevent the party of Yatsenyuk to overcome the 5% barrier necessary for hit in Parliament.
Moreover, in recent local elections the party did not participate, having supported candidates from the PPB.
