Prime Minister Yatsenyuk says he will step down if parliamentary majority votes him out
Ukraine's Prime Minister says he is ready to step down but only under certain conditions. At late-night talks Arseniy Yatsenyuk voiced his demands – he will go if parliament can find the needed 226 votes in favour of a new government which has a plan of action.
President Petro Poroshenko meanwhile reportedly says current finance minister Natalie Jaresko is a candidate for the Prime Minister's post.
Still, the pro-government faction is expressing hope the parliament c an find its way to uniting behind the current cabinet, potentially avoiding more political instability.
Refering to Yuriy Lutsenko, the president's party representative, Reuters reported earlier that Ukrainian party has buried idea of technocrat government.
The idea of a technocrat government "was basically buried yesterday (March 14) by Samopomich's announcement that it will not join any new coalition under any kind of government," Yuriy Lutsenko told parliament.
