Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko says she does not want to be considered for the post of prime minister.
Earlier, her supporters in parliament said she was one of the three favourites to be named to head a government of national unity.
"It was a surprise for me when I heard that I was being proposed for the post of prime minister. Nobody agreed this with me or discussed it with me. "I am grateful for the respect this shows, but I ask not to be considered for this post," she said in comments on her website.
