When asked the odds of Azarov becoming the prime minister again,
Kliuyev said: “The odds are good I believe. The thing is he is an
experienced prime minister, he has worked in the cabinet for a long
time, and I think that he is a worthy candidate. “
When asked whether he himself was ready to lead the government,
Kliuyev said: “It is a big responsibility to be prime minister,
especially in such a difficult time.”
Kliuyev was elected to the parliament on the list of the Party of Regions, but has turned down his MP’s mandate.
