The ex-the president Leonid Kravchuk decided to leave ranks of SDPU(O).
He declared it in interview to the newspaper "Day".
Kravchuk explained the decision with disagreement with creation of the block of the left forces with the participation of KPU, SDPU (o), "Justice" and "The union of the left forces".
"I leave SDPU(O) as the made decision, in - the first, was approved in the closed, not democratic mode. Now, if to adhere to this logic, I have to vote for Simonenko, whether that! ? ", - the president was indignant.
"In - the second, the position of the politburo of SDPU(O) in this case doesn't coincide with my position. And not simply doesn't coincide - contradicts my position", - he added.
Kravchuk noted that as "nobody was interested in his opinion, all made without me, I do (I leave party) without them, and I now not with them".
The president called the block of the left forces "artificial association which has no prospects because different forces which entered the so-called block, have absolutely different programs".
"By and large, they in general don't have anything the general", - Kravchuk emphasized.
