Rada may take a no-confidence vote on Premier Yatseniuk, if he fails to propose a new cabinet or resign within 3 non-plenary weeks, head of BPP faction Yury Lutsenko told journalists on Thursday, Interfax-Ukrayina reports.
“Rada has 3 non-plenary weeks ahead, and the premier has to either submit his new cabinet and a new program which can get 226 votes in support or hand in his resignation. Failing this, Rada will have to pass the no-confidence vote in the premier, not the cabinet,” Lutsenko said.
The Poroshenko-led BPP faction will not leave the coalition, and will not work with the present cabinet, Lutsenko stressed.
“We don’t believe the present cabinet can deal with fighting corruption, implementing reforms, defending Ukraine’s territorial integrity,” he said.
Batkivshchyna leader Yulia Tymoshenko announced earlier that her faction would initiate a motion to dismiss Yatseniuk by the weekend.
