The National Self-defense party won't put forward on upcoming elections of the President of Ukraine of the candidate, even "technical".
As the correspondent of the UNIAN reports, about it reported today on a press - conferences in Donetsk the vice-chairman of National Self-defense party Sergey LUTSENKO who is necessary the brother to the minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Yury LUTSENKO.
It reminded that "at the first stage of congress "Forward, Ukraine" which is called now "National self-defense", LUTSENKO Yury Vitalyevich declared that he won't stand under no circumstances the candidate for president of Ukraine. Point. This political decision".
S. LUTSENKO emphasized that "we don't consider it necessary to make a fool the people different number of candidates". According to him, now in the press there are various statements for that, "whose satellite is "National self-defense" whom it will support whom will lead in parliament", but the official position of party consists that "only congress has the right to define support of this or that candidate for president". S. LUTSENKO noted that this congress will pass approximately through one and a half - two months. "The first stage of congress at us already passed about an one and a half months ago, the second stage of congress at us will pass when the Ministry of Justice will issue us the document on party renaming (party "Forward, Ukraine! " it is renamed into National Self-defense party - the UNIAN) and modification of the party charter, - he explained. - It is about a month one and a half - two".
For now S. LUTSENKO accented that considers unethical conversations on the specific candidate: "I consider unethical to begin election campaign when still nobody knows even date of presidential election. Here when the Verkhovna Rada will define date, election campaign will begin, we will read programs of candidates and, most likely, any political decisions on this occasion" will be made.
He once again repeated that the decision of his brother Yu. LUTSENKO not to participate in the forthcoming presidential race is final. "Here already personal desire of the person and understanding of the role and the, at present, knowledge and opportunities. That will be in four years - we will look. And today it made the personal decision not to run for president Ukraine", - S. LUTSENKO concluded.
