Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Goncharuk resigned after six months and will be replaced by one of his deputies, according to the MP.
Goncharuk had offered to quit in January after he leaked a leaked record questioning President Volodymyr Zelensky's understanding of the economy just so the head of state refused to resign.
Although government officials did not confirm Goncharuk's resignation, deputies from Zelensky's party said that his farewell was announced during a meeting with the president and that a parliamentary vote would be held on Wednesday for approval.
Zelensky was planning to replace his 35-year-old prime minister – the youngest prime minister in Ukraine's history – because he was unsatisfied with the government's economic performance, official sources told AFP last week.
Goncharuk denied having resigned on Monday, but admitted that "consultations on the subject" had taken place with the president.
Late Tuesday, President of the People's Party MPs was informed of his resignation at a meeting with Zelensky, MP MEP Ievgenia Kravtchuk told AFP.
Zelensky told party members that Denys Chmygal, one of the vice premieres, would take over government affairs, Kravtchuk said.
The news was confirmed by two of her parliamentary colleagues, who said the foreign, finance and defense ministers would also be replaced.
Goncharuk was nominated for the post last August by Zelensky against the backdrop of a difficult economy and a protracted war with separatists with Russian support in the east.
But since the President's refusal to accept his last resignation, Zelensky's party has criticized the work of his government.
Comedian Zelensky, who became a politician, came to power last April and promised to "break the system" that had ruled Ukraine since independence in 1991.
His campaign promises included ending the conflict in the east, fighting corruption and launching economic reforms in one of the poorest countries in Europe.
His party won parliamentary elections in July and formed a government with a number of inexperienced ministers.
