BYuT is confident it enjoys the biggest support of Kyiv residents

Prime Minister of Ukraine, BYuT leader Yulia Tymoshenko claims that her political force has intent to propose its own candidate for the post of the Kyiv Mayor, as the coalition agreement between BYuT and OU-PSD does not stipulate proposing a single candidate.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yulia Tymoshenko claimed this to a press conference in the Cabinet of Ministers today.

“I may repeat once again that our political force will propose its own candidate for the post of the Kyiv Mayor, because we are responsible people, and if Kyiv residents trust us, we have to propose them the policy that will meet their needs”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.

The Prime Minister confirmed that the BYuT political bloc will propose its candidate at a press conference Thursday.

“I hope Mr. Klitchko will support our candidate in the end of the electoral race”, Yulia Tymoshenko noted.

“We are ready to take part in the election with our own candidacy regardless of rules of electing the Mayor. I have said many times already that our coalition agreement does not stipulate the provision that we should propose a single candidacy for the post of a Mayor in any city of the country. Namely because of that I believe that we, being the biggest team in the democratic sector, and enjoying the biggest support of Kyiv residents, we have to propose our own candidacy”, Yulia Tymoshenko stressed.

The Prime Minister added she has intent to hold another meeting with President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko to try to persuade him that the electoral legislation should be amended.
