The Servant of the People Party tops the rating of residents of Kyiv who plan to vote at Kyiv City Council elections and have decided who to vote for, according to a survey conducted by the Rating sociological group.
Findings of the poll handed over to UNIAN show that 68% of those polled plan to go to the polling stations.
The Servant of the People Party is the leader in the rating with 32.2% of votes of those who have made a choice and intend to vote. On the other hand, 12.4% of respondents would vote for Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko's Udar Party, 8.9% would back Petro Poroshenko's European Solidarity Party. Some 6.9% would support Svyatoslav Vakarchuk's Holos (Voice) Party, 6.4% Yulia Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna Party, 4.8% would vote for the Opposition Platform – For Life Party, and 4.6% for the All-Ukrainian Union Svoboda.
