"Premier said at the meeting: please show 226 votes for a new candidate for the premier, form a team, demonstrate the government action program for 2016. However we are ready to start consultations on the future of our participation in the coalition," MP Burbak noted.

Meanwhile, the head of the Samopomich faction Oleh Berezyuk said he did not hear from Prime Minister about his readiness to step down.

Earlier, leader of the Radical Party faction Oleh Lyashko also said that Yatsenyuk was ready to step down.
