The Ukrainian parliament will convene for an urgent meeting on July 31 to consider Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s letter of resignation.
Yatsenyuk said on Monday that his government would submit to the parliament draft laws on changes to the state budget and on the lease of the national gas transportation system.
“We will resubmit all the necessary draft laws to the parliament. I am asking all members of the parliament to come on Thursday… and vote for the laws that are needed by the Ukrainian state,” he said.
Last week, Yatsenyuk tendered resignation after the parliament had refused to pass the government bills following the breakup of the ruling coalition.
On July 24, the UDAR party announced its secession from the parliamentary coalition to allow the president to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) and announce early parliamentary elections.
