KIEV, October 24. /TASS/. Ukraine’s leadership is considering Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko as a possible successor to incumbent President Pyotr Poroshenko in the event the latter’s rating drops too low to run for another term, a Ukrainian lawmaker said on Monday.
"Lutsenko is Plan B for the current Ukrainian leadership seeking to stay in power. He is being prepared to succeed Poroshenko in case his ratings are too low to run for a next term. Lutsenko is working on this project," Sergey Leshchenko, a member of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) with the Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc, said in an interview with the 112.Ukraina TV channel.
"In a span of several years, Lutsenko will run for Ukrainian president using his post of prosecutor general for self-promotion and as a tool to obtain contacts with influential people to enroll their support at the elections," he said.
Earlier, Leshchenko also announced his presidential ambitions. Under the Ukrainian constitution, the next presidential polls are to be held in the spring of 2019.
