As we analyzed earlier today, the two parties which have the most seats in the new parliament are the parties of Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko and its Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. RFE/RL reports that Poroshenko is now proposing to keep Yantsenyuk on as Prime Minister:

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is proposing that Arseniy Yatsenyuk stay on as prime minister following the country's parliamentary elections last weekend.

"I have proposed that the Petro Poroshenko Bloc put forward Arseniy Yatsenyuk to the post of prime minister," Poroshenko wrote on Twitter on October 31.

Yatsenyuk's People's Front party narrowly beat out the Petro Poroshenko Bloc in voting by party in the October 26 election, according to a nearly complete count.

But Poroshenko's bloc fared better in first-past-the-post voting and was positioned to take more parliament seats than the People's Front, according to election commission data.
