On January 4, 2010 on air of the First national TV channel will pass televised debates between candidates for president of Ukraine Yury Kostenko and Sergey Tigipko.
The leader of UNP wasn't afflicted by such deal of lot as still the day before he suggested Sergey Tigipko to address mass media with discussion.
According to Kostenko, "The Ukrainian people's party which is for today the only party of the right range, is ready to debate with TIGIPKO, in what an essence of the right ideology". "Protection of national interest and the producer, instead of a herring and an embroidery, is an essence of the right ideology", - the leader of UNP noted. It called into question "statements of TIGIPKO that its election program represents the right ideology".
"Right-wing parties traditionally are defenders of "middle class", domestic market and the national producer whereas the election program of TIGIPKO is directed on protection of interests of the "big" capital, - multinational corporations and is large - commodity agriculture", - the leader of UNP considers. According to him, "TIGIPKO is not right, and more likely the neoliberal, - the representative of the ideology defending globalizations and opening of the national markets for multinational corporations".
