‘We Want new Intelligence’: MPs vote to oust Ukraine’s prime minister

They hunted 353-0 in favor of accepting the resignation of both Honcharuk, who had battled with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

Zelenskiy, in a note to MPs before the vote on Wednesday (4 March), blamed Honcharuk for failing to stop an industrial slump and also for not fulfilling tax group goals, according to the Associated Press.

“We want new brains and fresh hearts at the authorities,” explained Zelenskiy.

Afterward, MPs appointed Denys Shmygal to triumph Honcharuk since the head of Ukraine’s government.

Honcharuk, 35, who had been the youngest leader of the government in Ukraine’s history, initially offered his resignation in January.

This came after he had been caught on tape stating Zelenskiy — a former sitcom star with no prior political experience — understood nothing about the market.

Zelenskiy called the situation”disagreeable” but requested Honcharuk to keep on at work.

In his address on Wednesday, Zelenskiy stated while members of Honcharuk’s cupboard weren’t mired in corruption their attempts to eliminate graft had not been powerful enough.

“It is not enough to not slip,” he explained. “We guaranteed citizens to acquire the struggle against corruption and it has never been a tie”

In reaction, Honcharuk pointed to reduced inflation and macroeconomic stability among his accomplishments and commended Zelenskiy’s leadership.

“We’ve got a fantastic president, he is a decent and fair man,” Honcharuk explained.
