Delegates of the congress supported the proposal of the leader of the party, Yury Lutsenko, and voted in favor of the resolution on "overcoming the governmental crisis. The PPB "insists on the resignation of the entire Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.”

The main criterion for the formation of a new Government should not be party affiliation but professionalism and a focus on results," as reads the document published on the party’s Facebook page. The Government was also criticized for slowing down reforms, the collapse of the coalition and a loss of public trust.
