"I have declared it earlier and declare again that I am
ready to extend my hand to the President and his faction. For 24 months we have
been implementing the most complex and the most unpopular reforms. And we must
never stop halfway," stressed Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk
on Tuesday, February 23, answering the questions of journalists in Kharkiv.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk reminded that he had appealed to the
Verkhovna Rada with a request to vote in Parliament a resolution of no
confidence in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine: "Such a resolution
didn’t get enough votes".
"This means that the major factions in the Parliament -
the Petro Poroshenko Bloc and the People’s Front, must finally assume the full
responsibility for the political and economic stability," he said.
"We hope to strengthen the coalition, and now we are
engaged in the discussions with other members of the former coalition, so that
to strengthen it", said the Head of Government.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk reminded that on February 18,
when the two factions – the Motherland and the Self-Reliance
– had been absent in the assembly hall - the Parliament
finally supported with 251 votes the law on a key
of public sector of economy which concerns management of state-owned
property: "There was introduced a concept of independent Directors that
been blocked throughout 12 months".
"I am convinced that all of us have
political responsibility before the country, instead of
hysteria about the upcoming early parliamentary elections, which won’t
do any good
for the country," said the Head of Government.
