KIEV, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Turchynov, appointed interim acting president of the country at the end of last month, has urged candidates for presidency to hold a decent and transparent campaign in the run-up to elections scheduled for May 25.

“I call on all the candidates for presidency to put their best efforts into preventing a repletion of past presidential campaigns that were marked by mudslinging,” Turchinov said in a televised address to the nation.

He claimed that “all the citizens of Ukraine have equal rights.”

“We’ll do everything in our power to make the elections transparent, fair and democratic,” he said. “Also, I’ll do my best to see to it that not a single official could wield impact on the free expression of the voters’ will,” Turchinov said.
