The Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk, was forced to resign on Thursday after two parties supporting the government abandon parliamentary coalition – so did 15 independent deputies. New elections will presumably be held next October.

“I announce my resignation as a result of the dissolution of the coalition and the blockade of government bills,” said Yatseniuk to Parliament. Earlier, the radical – nationalist Svoboda and UDAR – mayor of Kiev and ex-boxer Vitali Klitschko – groups had sunk energy reform promoted by the Executive to refuse to vote. The initiative was backed by just 94 votes of the 226 needed.

The Prime Minister explained that, before the rupture of the alliance, had two possibilities. One was to form a new coalition, but then would have had to invite the Communists and the Party of Regions, which belonged to the ousted president Viktor Yanukovych. “Under no circumstances could do that,” said Yatseniuk on a possible union with his political enemies. The Communist parliamentary group was dissolved Thursday by the president of the Supreme Rada (parliament), and the prosecution has opened 308 criminal cases against members of the PC accused of supporting the Russian annexation of Crimea and creating popular republics identifying themselves as Donetsk and Lugansk.

The second possibility, which Yatseniuk decided, was resigning.

Parliament President Alexander Turchinov, proposed UDAR Svoboda and submit the nomination of a prime minister to be technical lead cabinet ministers until early elections are held and can form a new coalition government.

President Petro Poroshenko is presented and the opportunity for a group to be faithful in Parliament, whose current composition is inherited from the era Yanukovych. His problem is that he has his own party and still depends on your policy that are represented in the House. Now you must take this situation and try to create a movement that succeeds in obtaining a solid parliamentary representation.

So far, the force with upper hand was the Fatherland Party of former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko: representatives belong to him as Yatseniuk or Turchinov.
