New coalition in the Verkhovna Rada

250 Members of Parliament in Ukraine form a new coalition in the Verkhovna Rada: the EUROPEAN CHOICE Coalition

= Batkivshchyna Faction
+ UDAR Faction
+ Svoboda Faction
+ new People’s Deputies group “Sovereign European Ukraine”
+ new People’s Deputies group “Economic Development”.

250 MPs is a clear “simple majority” – more than the 226 out of 450 MPs required to pass most votes in the legislature (those that do not require a Constitutional majority of two-thirds i.e. 300 out of 450).

Also, Batkivshchyna Faction Leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk has been approved as the new Prime Minster of Ukraine.
