In Parubiy's opinion, elections should be held in accordance with the Constitution.

"If I'm not mistaken, according to the Constitution, elections are held on the last Sunday of March of the fifth year of the president's tenure. This is the only way I see legal grounds and legitimate prerequisites," Parubiy said.
