There is a small insignificant number of MPs with pro-Russian stance in the Servant of the People party. The share makes not more than 1-2 percent from the overall number of candidates. David Arakhamia, the party's future candidate for the head of the parliamentary faction said this in an interview with Radio NV.

All these candidates, he said, were those who won the parliamentary election in their respectiive single-mandate constituencies; these MPs will have to be "re-educated".

"Pro-Russian vector holds no influence there. I guess, it's one or two percent. And these people are relatively "pro-Russian"; they don't stay we've got to stick with Russia, they say we've got to to sort things out", Arakhamia said.

One of the key figures in Servant of the People, Arakhamia mentioned that the decision-making mechanism looks like this: if less than 10 percent of all MPs from the party faction oppose a decision, they still have to obey it and succumb to the majority's position. He added that there's a high chance of a variety of opinions in the faction during the voting.

As is known, Servant of the People, the pro-presidential political force claimed an impressive victory in the parliamentary election in Ukraine on July 21. The party's MPs got 254 of 424 seats in the new Parlaiment, which guarantees the simple majority (at least 226 votes, - 112 International) and, respectively, the right to pass many decisions without the need to create a parliamentary coalition.
