KIEV, February 4. /TASS/. Odessa Region Governor Mikheil Saakashvili-led party would have qualified for the Ukrainian Parliament if early elections had been held last month, the sociological group Rating said in a survey published on Thursday.
The elections’ outcome might have looked as follows: Petro Poroshenko Bloc Solidarity — 14.3%, Opposition Bloc — 13.5%, Samopomishch (Self-Help) — 11.7% and Saakashvili’s party and Batkivshchina — 11.6% each. Svoboda would have collected 6.9% of the votes, Radical Party — 5.5% and Ukrop — 4.7%.
Sociologists have intensified their surveys of the state of public mind as Ukraine’s political establishment has displayed growing sentiment in favor of the dissolution of parliament and early parliamentary elections. Analysts believe the elections may be held within months. Moreover, the Petro Poroshenko-led Bloc Solidarity has already begun preparations for them.
The governor of the Odessa Region in December 2015 declared creation of a wide non-partisan anti-corruption movement in Ukraine.
"We are beginning Ukraine’s renewal," Saakashvili told the media on the sidelines of the anti-corruption forum Movement for Clean Ukraine. Observers believe that the Saakashvili-led political party may assume the same name.
