Backstage negotiations on the distribution of parliamentary committees are still underway inside the coalition.

DT.UA found out that one of the questions was the issue of getting the budget committee. "Petro Poroshenko Bloc" nominated Yuriy Lutsenko as a head of the committee. At the same time the leader of the Radical Party insists on giving this committee to his political power.

Lyashko points to "Batkivshchyna" to explain his point. According to him, despite his party is larger, it has received only one committee while "Batkivshchyna" got three committees. "Petro Poroshenko Bloc", in turn, expects to leave the budget committee.

The second controversial issue in the negotiations is fact that the tycoon and governor of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Administration, Igor Kolomoisky, promotes Boris Filatov, his former deputy and now a Member of Parliament to head the Commission on Privatization, which had been liquidated earlier.

According ZN.UA, through the reactivation of the Commission, which had been previously abolished and its functions transferred to one of the committees at Verkhovna Rada, and Filatov's appointment, Kolomoysky expects to realize his own vision of business re-privatization in Ukraine.

The coalition, in turn, opposes such candidate.

Earlier in the interview to "Channel 5" Kolomoysky offered to return privatization objects sold under President Yanukovych into the state ownership.
