KIEV, March 26, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former vice-premier Yuri Boiko who used to oversee the fuel and energy sector on Wednesday submitted his documents to the Central Electoral Commission necessary for his registration as candidate for Ukraine’s presidential elections slated for May 25.
“I have just been registered as a presidential candidate. I have a clear-cut programme aimed at the country’s re-unification and against the territorial split of our state,” Boiko told journalists on Wednesday.
“I believe that this is what our people need now,” Boiko said.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Central Electoral Commission registered Ukraine’s former deputy chief prosecutor Renat Kuzmin as presidential candidate; Mikhail Dobkin, the former administration chief of the Kharkov region; Sergei Tigipko, one of the leaders of the Party of Regions; and Ukraine’s Communist party leader Pyotr Simonenko have submitted their registration documents as self-nominated candidates.
Vitali Klitschko, the UDAR (Punch) party leader; Yulia Timoshenko, the leader of the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party, and Dmitry Yarosh, the leader of the Right Sector movement, used to have plans to run in the presidential race.
Ukraine’s leading businessman and parliamentary deputy Pyotr Poroshenko is also expected to take part in the elections.
