KIEV, February 23, (ITAR-TASS) - Ukraine’s former deputy prime minister Sergei Tigipko will possibly run for presidency in Ukraine’s early elections, representing southern and eastern regions of the country, as the Party of Regions believes Viktor Yanukovich is unlikely to participate in the elections, Ukrainian Independent Information Agency (UNIAN) reports on Saturday.
“Neither Azarov nor ‘the young team’ can represent the party, and an optimal candidacy must be found,” the news agency quoted a party official as saying, adding that Tigipko already enjoyed support of most party structures.
On Saturday, former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko released from prison earlier in the day, said she would run for presidency. Earlier on Saturday, the parliament voted for early presidential elections on May 25.
