All political parties should make efforts to ensure that the presidential election due on May 25 would be fair and democratic expression of the people’s will, leader of UDAR Vitali Klitschko said in the speech to the parliament.

"This week will leave its mark in the history of Ukraine. During these days we have to do everything so that Ukraine could win," Klitschko said.

He said that all political forces are responsible for the election to be held for all Ukrainian voters. Vitali Klitschko pointed out that Donbas politicians should use their authority and influence to promote the election rather than fuelling the conflict.

UDAR leader stressed the importance to do everything to ensure that all polling stations are open on time, all election commissions members and observers can do their job honestly and in good faith. Klitschko reminded that Parliament had passed amendments to the legislation that ensures safe voting for each citizen. "Implementation of the law and security of voting will be a performance indicator for law enforcement officials. The whole world is looking at us. Everyone’s actions will be assessed," Klitschko said.

At the same time, politician noted that it also concerns local elections. Vitali Klitschko said that there is information that one of Odessa mayoral candidates Gennady Trukhanov has two passports as a citizen of the Russian Federation. "How can foreign national be running for mayor of the Ukrainian city? Let alone the fact that he is a citizen of the state, which is basically at war with Ukraine, under whose flag militants organize bloody provocations," he said. Klitschko called on Speaker Turchynov to investigate such facts and find out whether the law had been violated.
