KIEV, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Yulia Tymoshenko, a presidential candidate from Ukraine’s Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party, has said she is against postponing the May 25 presidential elections to a later date.

“I am categorically against that,” Timoshenko told a news conference on Tuesday. “The presidential elections in Ukraine should be held as early as possible. The May 25 presidential elections will become the most honest polls in the history of independent Ukraine,” Timoshenko stressed.

Tymoshenko, who is the Batkivshchina party leader, said she was not planning to withdraw from the presidential race in favour of businessman Pyotr Poroshenko.

“I support Pyotr Poroshenko every day. My family buys his Roshen sweets regularly. We eat only this brand of sweets. I believe this to be a very good support,” Tymoshenko explained, noting it was up to voters rather than politicians to choose between presidential candidates.

Tymoshenko said the president should be elected by people rather than politicians by nominating a single candidate.

“Elections are held in two rounds. People have the right to elect their leader without arrangements made in the corridors of power,” Tymoshenko emphasized.
