Ihor Hryniv was the only candidate put to vote.
The Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) parliamentary faction has elected MP Ihor Hryniv as its new chairman now that its previous head Yuriy Lutsenko was appointed interior minister.
According to PPB MP Viktor Pynzenyk, the decision was unanimous.
One of the founding fathers of the People's Movement of Ukraine (Rukh) in 1989, he has been a member of parliament of five convocations since then. After Petro Poroshenko was elected president, Hryniv was in charge of the working group preparing his inauguration, and a deputy head of the presidential administration from June to November 2014.
