BYuT lawmaker Mykola Tomenko does not rule out that the Kyiv youth may neglect the elections of capital Mayor and Kyiv City Council deputies, scheduled for May 25.
According to Tomenko’s press-service, this was the lawmaker’s comment on the poll, carried out by the Ukrainian Democratic Circles on April 18-22 on demand of the Institute of Politics.
“Considering the results of the poll, and the “active” celebration of the Kyiv Day [May 24-25], one may assume that mainly aged people will come to polling stations. That is why, presently, all participants of the electoral race should be interested that all Kyiv residents take part in deciding the future of Kyiv. The youth should not be left aside of making decisions on the Kyiv capital’s destiny”.
In line with the results of the poll, some 56.7% of those polled said they would take part in the Kyiv elections, some 41.2% of those polled had not decided whether they will vote, and some 2.1% said they will not take part in the voting.
Experts do not rule out a possibility that less than 59-60% of electors will take part in the voting.
The poll was carried out by the Ukrainian Democratic Circles on April 18-22, on demand of the Institute of Politics. On the whole, 1200 respondents aged over 18 years old were interrogated. The error margin does not exceed 2.8%.
