Ally of Ukraine's President Elected New Prime Minister

MOSCOW (AP) — The speaker of the Ukrainian parliament has been elected prime minister after a months-long political crisis.

The parliament on Thursday voted 250-57 for Volodymyr Groysman, who was nominated by President Petro Poroshenko.

The outgoing prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, resigned earlier this week after weeks of pressure for him to step down. He had survived a no-confidence vote in February.

Groysman has been perceived as a conciliatory figure after the governing coalition refused to support U.S.-born Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko, who has been lauded as a West-friendly reformist untainted by cronyism and corruption.
