 If Klitschko Passes Up, Opposition Will Nominate Another Candidate for Kyiv Mayor, Says Batkivschyna

Even if the leader of Udar Vitali Klitschko refuses to run for the post of mayor of Kyiv, the political opposition will nominate a single candidate.

It was announced on Channel 5 by Batkivschyna deputy Vitalii Yarema.

"The opposition has repeatedly stated that we are going in a single front - the three opposition forces will nominate a single candidate. Vitali Klitschko's name was voiced, as he has repeatedly than once declared his ambitions for the post. Second, today the authority of the man is extremely high in Kyiv, and that is why the opposition forces nominated him. If he refuses to run for mayor of Kyiv - it's his right - then we will meet again and put forward another single candidate. Under no circumstances will candidates from Svoboda, Udar or Batkivschyna run against each other," said Yarema.
