Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine withdraws issue of Saakashvili’s appointment as Deputy Prime Minister - Ukrainian media

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has withdrawn the issue of appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as Deputy Prime Minister from the Verkhovna Rada, Ukrainian media reports.

“His appointment has been blocked. After lengthy negotiations, the Servant of the People faction could gain support of only 140-170 MPs out of 248 MPs. There are not enough votes, so Zelensky decided not to support Saakashvili publicly”, - writes Censor.net.
