Prev 01 14 Next

Ukraine’s parliament voted on April 14 to appoint Volodymyr Groysman as the country's new prime minister, with 257 lawmakers -- 31 votes more than needed -- supporting his candidacy.

Groysman, who served as the speaker of parliament since November 2014, replaces Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who spent two years as prime minister.

Andriy Parubiy, Yatsenyuk’s party member and an active participant of the EuroMaidan Revolution that drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power two years ago, took over as speaker. He served as deputy speaker for Groysman. Poroshenko Bloc lawmaker Iryna Gerashchenko was voted in as the new deputy speaker.
