KIEV (QHA) -

Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s decision to step down as Prime Minister is to be respected, Vladimir Groisman, Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, said opening a meeting of the conciliatory council of factions leaders and chairmen of parliamentary committees, says a report posted on the website of the Ukrainian Parliament.

“As you all know, Arseniy Petrovych Yatsenyuk resigned as Prime Minister yesterday. I regard it as an act of dignity and reason. Perhaps, it wasn’t easy for him to make such a decision but it is to be respected,” said Groisman.

According to Groisman, the Ukrainian Parliament requires reset now.

“It is important that there is a new coalition now, which is capable of forming a reform-minded government, electing a prime minister, ensuring irreversibility of eurointegration, increasing government effectiveness and resolving the ongoing crisis,” said Vladimir Groisman.

It was reported earlier that Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk resigned as Prime Minister on April 10, 2016. On April 12, 2016, his request for resignation will be submitted to the Parliament, and if it is approved, Ukraine will soon have a new prime minister. The only likely candidate for the position now is Vladimir Groisman, Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament.
