Ukraine: Prime Minister step down
Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Prime Minister of Ukraine, resigned. The official declared on his resigning from the post of Prime Minister during a speech in the Verkhovna Rada on July 24.
A.Yatsenyuk called the refusal of the deputies to include the government draft laws on making budget cuts for 2014 in the agenda of the parliament, as well as the reform of Naftogaz Ukrainy, as the main reason for the decision.
After the reporting announcement, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine instructed the parliament to begin consultations on appointment of the technical Prime Minister.
According to the Constitution of Ukraine, resignation of the Prime Minister automatically leads to resignation of the Cabinet of Ministers, which in such case would have to fulfill its functions until formation of a new government.
