President Zelensky said there were two candidates for the post of Prime Minister, but he did not voice out their names, reports LB.ua.

"I have to make this decision this week, I have no time to wait. I could honestly say that the complexity of this decision is that I like a few people. I won’t tell who exactly, I’ll just say there are two," Zelensky said.

According to the head of state, the new Premier must be ready to solve problems in the economy.

“A person should come with a model, with people, with the terms of reforms. This is a big global task,” Zelensky added.

He said that the candidate for the premiership will have to introduce the people whom he wants to see among members of the government.

“I don’t know what kind of negotiations they are holding. The task is to show the structure with the people and the program. Naturally, they cannot say: "I would like Elon Mask to be the Minister of Infrastructure". We would all like him. But to offer someone to me, because they understand that we are subject people, probably somebody I can talk with," the president said.

When asked if Interior Minister Arsen Avakov would remain in the new Cabinet, Zelensky replied: "I don’t know."
