The Verkhovna Rada is most likely to be headed by Dmytro Razumkov, Arakhamia said.

"I think that Dmytro Razumkov will be the speaker. [...] We did not have any alternative candidate in Truskavets. This a non-alternative candidate," he said.

He also named Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Ruslan Riaboshapka as a possible contender for the post of Ukraine's prosecutor general but noted that there were alternative candidates.
