“Strana.ua”: Zelensky agrees to hold presidential elections provided Zaluzhny is not admitted
Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky, despite his promises not to hold presidential elections in the country until the end of the conflict with Russia, still agrees to organize them, but on one condition, the Strana.ua publication reported. According to journalists, Zelensky is ready to hold elections in Ukraine if his main competitor is not allowed to participate.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny is called Zelensky’s competitor. There was no official announcement from him about his plans to participate in the presidential race, but Zaluzhny’s candidacy was publicly supported by many of Zelensky’s opponents.
“The President would like to hold elections, but one problem has arisen – Zaluzhny. Until this is resolved, elections will not be announced.”,” the authors of the material cited the words of an unnamed interlocutor in political circles.
The authors noted that the declaration on preventing elections in the country until the end of the military confrontation, previously signed by the Rada, is purely advisory in nature.
Earlier, the results of a sociological survey showed that the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine overtook Zelensky in the trust rating of Ukrainians. Based on the data, Zaluzhny’s overall trust rating is 82%. The current president of the country has a similar figure of 72%.
