Klitschko intends to run for mayor of Kyiv from the party "BLOW"

The mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klitschko declared that will stand in mayors of the capital from party "BLOW", which he heads, and not from political power, ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

Previously, Verkhovna Rada Deputy from the faction of "European solidarity" Irina Gerashchenko said that the party proposes Klitschko to lead the party list on elections to the city Council in the fall and ready to support his candidacy for mayor of the Ukrainian capital.

"I read in the media statement of the party "European solidarity" the readiness to announce my candidacy for mayor of Kiev. I want to thank you for the suggestion. But I would say that I am a leader of a political force "UDAR", which has always fought and defended the democratic European values. And I will run for mayor from the party "UDAR of Vitali Klitschko". And will lead the team "SHOT" in the local elections, in particular in the city Council," he wrote Friday in a Telegram.

The mayor added that for the sake of protecting the interests of local government and citizens, the party is ready "to cooperate with all democratic forces, which will operate under the rules and decent".
