Bal­ance of power in par­lia­ment

Kyiv Post - - News -

Af­ter the Rad­i­cal Party’s exit, the gov­ern­ing coali­tion was down to a strength of 268 law­mak­ers in the 450-seat leg­is­la­ture. A sim­ple ma­jor­ity of 226 votes is re­quired to pass leg­is­la­tion. Amid lax dis­ci­pline and in­ter­nal con­flict in the gov­ern­ment coali­tion, find­ing a ma­jor­ity has been in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult, even though Pres­i­dent Petro Poroshenko and Prime Min­is­ter Arseniy Yat­senyuk’s blocs have a com­bined 223 votes alone.
