Sadovyi submitted an application to the CEC to withdraw his candidacy from the presidential elections

“I made my choice and I think that other candidates will go the same way.” Today, the leader of the Samopomich party, city mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovyi, filed an application with the Central Election Commission to withdraw his candidacy from the election of the President of Ukraine on March 31, 2019.

“Right now, Ukraine has a chance to choose a pro-Ukrainian anti-corruption president.

The path that the country is taking now might lead to some very dark times. Someone may agree or disagree with me, but this is what I think. And therefore I made a difficult but very responsible decision for myself,” says Sadovyi.

Despite this, the politician calls on all voters to come to the polling stations on election day and fulfil their “sacred duty” – to vote.

“Just like all Christians go to church on Easter day, all of us must come and vote – this is very important. Everybody has their own preferences in relation to particular candidates. But we must vote to make sure the elections are not stolen from us and that they are fair.”

We shall recall that on Friday, March 1, the mayor of Lviv, the leader of Samopomich, Andriy Sadovyi, announced that he was withdrawing from the presidential race in favour of Anatoliy Hrytsenko. This week the politicians should sign the support agreement.
