KIEV, May 01 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former minister for social issues, Natalya Korolevskaya has decided to withdraw from the presidential race.
“I’ve taken a very important decision for myself and tomorrow, on the Day of Peace and Labor (May 1), I’ll explain for my decision to the people,” Ukrainian mass media quoted her.
Korolevskaya’s political party ‘Forward Ukraine’ has not confirmed the decision of its leader yet.
She is not the first candidate to withdraw from the controversial race. Somewhat earlier, a decision to pull out of the campaign was made public by Oleg Tsaryov, a leader of antifascist forces who has become the target of assaults by radicals on quite a number of occasions recently.
Ukraine’s Central Electoral Commission has registered 23 candidates for the presidential office. If Korolevskaya confirms media reports on her dropping out of the race, the number of candidates will reduce to 21.
