Political analyst Sergei Gaidai explained the details of the format in which the leader of group “Ocean of Elza” Svyatoslav Vakarchuk may participate in the election.
The expert noted that Vakarchuk feels obliged because of the confidence which he expressed Ukrainians
“Vakarchuk two months ago said that he clearly understands that he is not ready to run for and hold the office of President. On the other hand, he is well aware that, one way or another, Ukrainians look at him as a potential participant, and he feels obliged. Most likely, he is thinking about a different format – to support someone, you have to be a participant in the election, but not in the format of the candidate, and as a concerned citizen who decided to support a certain candidate,” says hayday.
He also added that artists can use as a VIP-agitators for other politicians.
“It is obvious that the elections may arise in the following scenario: the real battle may be between Tymoshenko and Hrytsenko… Vakarchuk could easily support Gritsenko, because it is closer to the public, more youth, midst a Facebook and more westernized,” said hayday.
Recall, Svyatoslav Vakarchuk held a meeting in Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. The meeting began with the question of the rector of the institution. He was asked whether Svyatoslav Vakarchuk to participate in the presidential race.
“I am absolutely proud that I have lived my 42 years so that I can even potentially be included in the presidential ratings, because I lived his life with dignity. I lived honestly, I earned my money honestly,” said singer.
However, many experts acknowledge that for the election Vakarchuk President has all the chances. Because now in society there is a demand for the emergence of a bright new candidate.
“A candidate has rapidly gained popularity and vote for mandatory two factor, other — desirable. The first is the national recognition. About a person need to know or to guess at least 70-80% of the population. The second factor — the citizens must believe that the person is much more honest and decent other candidates”, — the expert explains Alexander Solontay.
Also sees the perspective in the Chorus, and head of political programs of the Ukrainian Institute for the future Yuri Romanenko.
“Vakarchuk could be a chance for the country in that case he will go for an Alliance with the advanced part of the middle class, if aware of the role of structure and organization in the political game,” – said the expert.
