Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said that he is not planning to join any political force and that he attended the People's Front congress in Kyiv on 11 November as a guest of honour, according to an LB.ua correspondent.

"Yatsenyuk invited me as a guest of honour to address the congress with the opening speech. I'm non-partisan. I am the coalition prime minister and I have no plans to join one or another party. We have two years before elections, let's talk then," he said.

"You should ask the leaders of two parties (Petro Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front) whether they want to merge," he added.

According to Groysman, the main task is to develop the national economy. The best indicator of this will be a higher birth rate, he added.
