Kvitashvili won't withdraw resignation letter, intends to continue work as Health Minister
Health Minister of Ukraine Alexander Kvitashvili will not withdraw his resignation letter and intends to continue work as a health minister.
"The Verkhovna Rada failed to vote for my resignation four times. I won't take the resignation letter because it's not serious. Having submitted a resignation letter, I'm working as usual, according to the usual schedule, nothing has changed for me. But my position in this regard was very simple: I said if you don't like my work, I'm ready to resign, I did not ask to appoint me for the post, I have no political ambitions, I won't set up a party. I came to Ukraine to work having the experience of practical changes, therefore if somebody is not satisfied with my work and if I have no support, then it would be logical to resign," he said, adding that "now something has changed and some support appeared."
Commenting on the possible appointment of the deputy head of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko parliamentary faction, Oleksiy Honcharenko, as a health minister, Kvitashvili noted that "I hear this for the first time, I know nothing about his official support."
