Ukraine's new parliament has elected Arseniy Yatsenyuk for a new term as prime minister.
In its first session on November 27 the Verkhovna Rada also elected former Deputy Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroysman as parliament speaker.
Pro-Western parties swept to victory in the October 26 elections, led by President Petro Poroshenko's bloc and Yatsenyuk's People's Front.
Poroshenko called the early poll in a bid to set Ukraine on a new path eight months after pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted following opposition protests.
Five pro-Western parties which have agreed to form a ruling coalition control a total of 288 seats in the 421-seat parliament.
However, talks amongst the coalition partners on forming a new Cabinet have bogged down.
Analysts say the delay is due to rivalry between Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk over control of key portfolios.
