KIEV, October 27. /TASS/. Ukrainian president’s son Aleksey Poroshenko is leading in his constituency with 68%, the country’s Central Elections Commission said.
However, only 0.86% of protocols have been processed in his 12th constituency in west-central Ukraine’s Vinnitsa region.
Aleksey Poroshenko is the main VIP candidate in parliament. His father was earlier elected as a lawmaker in this 12th constituency. Elected president, Poroshenko Sr. has dropped his powers of lawmaker.
The president said that his son decided to run for lawmaker himself. “I was bringing up my son so that he will take his decisions himself. He has decided to run for deputy. He did not consult with me,” Petro Poroshenko told a news conference.
