The first round of a presidential election will be held on March 31, 2019. If no candidate gets an absolute majority, then a second vote (a run-off vote) will be held on April 21.
Opinion polls show the election is too close to call and, as it stands, incumbent President Petro Poroshenko could be usurped by an actor who once played the president of Ukraine in a hit TV show.
Ukraine is a country sandwiched between Russia and Europe and is often tugged both ways by its neighbors. While Ukraines current government firmly sides with Europe and the West, Ukrainian politics and politicians can have deep ties to Russia, giving the vote a deeper geopolitical significance. - Posted on : 08-March-2019
The ballot for Ukraine’s presidential election will include 39 candidates, a marginally slimmer field after five contenders dropped out in recent days.
The final candidates’ list for the March 31 vote was announced Friday by the central elections commission.
Opinion polls suggest that no candidate is likely to get anywhere close to the 50 percent of the votes needed to win in a first round.
Television comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy leads the pre-election surveys with support of around 25 percent. Former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko and incumbent Petro Poroshenko are in the second and third places, although polls differ on who is in the stronger position. - Posted on : 08-March-2019
Presidential elections will be held in Ukraine on 31 March 2019. If no candidate receives an absolute majority of the vote, a second round will be held on 21 April.
There are a total of 39 candidates for the election. By the end of the registration period on 9 February 2019 a record breaking 44 candidates had been officially registered for the elections. By 7 March, five candidates had withdrawn from the presidential race. 7 March was the last day when candidates could withdraw their names from the ballot.
34,544,993 people are eligible to vote in the elections. Roughly 12% of eligible voters will not be able to participate in the elections due to the March 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia and the occupation of parts of Donetsk Oblast and Luhansk Oblast by separatists (since April 2014). - Posted on : 08-February-2019
