Members of parliament representing Our Ukraine, the party of President Viktor Yushchenko, and Tymoshenko's bloc approved the proposal unanimously in a room inside the parliament building.
The coalition is now to submit Tymoshenko's nomination to the president, who then has 15 days to consider it and send it to the 450-seat parliament for approval.
The two "orange" groups control 227 seats in parliament after a September election, one more than required to win most votes in the chamber.
Also approved unanimously by the coalition was a proposal to nominate Foreign Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk as speaker of parliament.
