Lutsenko states coalition still exists

Head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction, Yuriy Lutsenko, has stated that still there are 237 signatures under the Coalition Agreement and thus the parliamentary coalition exists. 

Yuriy Lutsenko said this after a sitting of the parliament’s conciliatory council, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“At this moment we have 237, if I’m not mistaken, signatures of MPs that have confirmed they are members of the coalition. Today Mr. Liashko has stated that they will withdraw their signatures on Monday. OK, this will also change the balance of power,” Lutsenko noted.

According to him, when members of the Radical Party faction withdraw their signatures, then it is possible to speak about "the end of the coalition."

Earlier, deputy head of the Batkivschyna faction, Serhiy Sobolev, stated that at a meeting of MPs with Verkhovna Rada Chairman Volodymyr Groysman it was stated that there had been no coalition in the parliament for 36 days.
