Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and his government resigned on July 24 after the collapse of the ruling coalition in parliament, to allow President Petro Poroshenko to start the procedure for new parliamentary elections.
As he announced his resignation on July 24, Yatsenyuk lashed out at lawmakers for failing to pass laws on energy and on a budget increase to fund the armed forces.
"I announce the resignation due to the collapse of the coalition & due to blocking of the Government's legislative initiatives"- he wrote in Twitter.
Following Yatsenyuk's resignation, parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchynov asked the UDAR and Svoboda parties to nominate a "technical candidate" to fill the prime minister's post.
UDAR and Svoboda were the two parties that pulled out of the coalition earlier in the day.
