Poroshenko Bloc sees no alternative to PM Yatseniuk
Leader of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction in Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada Yuriy Lutsenko said that there is no alternative to incumbent Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk now.
"Given all the criticism for the low efficiency of the government I believe personally that there is no alternative to Prime Minister Yatseniuk now," Lutsenko said live on the Vesti radio station on Monday.
The politician also said that all ministers of Yatseniuk's government would deliver reports and plans at a coalition meeting. "And to dedicate a day to the government on which an incumbent or new government proposed by the prime minister will be put on a vote of confidence. I refer to the whole government and this makes no sense to do it for each minister," Lutsenko said.
It was reported that Yatseniuk pledged to organize an inspection into the effectiveness of the activity of the government in September and upon the results of which he would offer the parliamentary coalition to replace the ministers not coping with their duties.
"In September it will be clear what is done and what is not. Upon the results of the assessment on the activity of each minister I will propose to the parliamentary coalition a new line-up of the Cabinet and a new, effective structure of the Ukrainian government and the regional state authorities," Yatseniuk said live on the '10 minutes with the premier' program.
Yatseniuk said that he had already attended to "the reports of all the ministries and the tasks were set for each minister in each sphere," so, it would be clear in September what is done and what is not.
