Yatsenyuk: the more different parties in the coalition, the less chances it has

The issues of forming a viable coalition will be considered after the plenary week.

This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels.

«Sit down, I think, after the plenary week», — said Yatsenyuk.

On specifying question, which question would be considered, he said: «This is the formation of a viable coalition».

Speaking about his conversation with the leader of the Radical party Oleg Lyashko on his vision of the coalition, the Prime Minister noted that Lyashko said: «I’m not going (post — ed) now. Let’s sit down with «BPP», the President, with the people’s front, with you, with me first and agree that we do.»

«He (Lyashko — ed.) did not say a word to me about fasting and myself never said anything», — said Yatsenyuk.

Yatsenyuk believes that criticism of the government must bear their share of political responsibility for its work.

«Want to hear a specific claim to a particular Minister, who had been recommended by a specific political party,» he said.

He noted that the European practice knows the cases of forming a single-party government. Because its operation should depend not on personalities, but to follow philosophical values and programs.

«The more different parties in the coalition, it is less likely that this coalition would last long,» — said Yatsenyuk.

According to him, the current government and Parliament are deprived of significant oligarchic influence.

«Influence on the government has no representative of any business group, a business lobby, as it was before. Influence of oligarchs on the Parliament substantially weakened. It exists, it is true, but it’s not what it used to be», — said Yatsenyuk.

He also added that the oligarchs are not happy with the government that «got nothing».

«What did the oligarchs in the last two years of such activities of the government, what they got? They got nothing,» — said Yatsenyuk.

Recall, 16 January the Verkhovna Rada listened to the report of the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on the government’s work in 2015, dismissed him, acknowledging that the work is not satisfactory, but during the vote of no confidence in the government has gained only 194 votes with the required 226. A new vote on this issue is possible only at the next session, which will begin in September.

February 17, faction «Batkivshchyna» announced its withdrawal from the coalition. In September 2015 the coalition left Radical party of Oleg Lyashko.

Without representatives «Samopomich», «the BYuT representatives» and «radicals» in the coalition «European Ukraine» will remain 217 deputies at the minimum required 226 members to form a majority.

Many politicians and experts talk about the inevitability of early parliamentary elections.
