"Dear colleagues, sad news.

He added that according to the Constitution, MPs should form a new majority within a month from the date of termination of the coalition's activities.

"According to the provisions of Article 83, Paragraph 7 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a new coalition must be formed within one month from the day the coalition of parliamentary factions ceases its activities in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Thus, I call on representatives of all factions and groups to begin consultations on the formation of a new coalition," Parubiy said.

It consisted of 302 MPs. Later, Samopomich, Radical Party and Batkivschyna announced about their withdrawal from the coalition.
