 Poroshenko Bloc had not yet discussed Cabinet staff turnover announced by Yatseniuk, - MP Kononenko

Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction Deputy Head Ihor Kononenko said that his faction has not yet discussed the staff turnover in the Cabinet of Ministers announced by Prime Minister Yatseniuk.

He said on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada, Censor.NET correspondent reports.

According to Kononenko, the Parliament must first approve candidates for the vacant positions of deputy prime ministers and ministers of ecology and health after proposal of Yatseniuk.

Ihor Kononenko also expressed doubt that the issue of changing the heads of the ministries would be resolved this week, and said that perhaps the Prime Minister will be invited to a meeting of the Poroshenko Bloc faction on Monday. The MP also noted that he would like to know the candidates for the vacant positions proposed by PM Yatsenyuk. "He said in his speech that he had such candidates. We will see them and then discuss," Kononenko said.

Ihor Kononenko also considered it highly improbable that some factions would pull out of the coalition: "As of today, Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front, and Batkivshchyna, and Samopomich have reaffirmed their desire to continue working within the coalition with colleagues from other factions," he said.
