Poroshenko does not intend to leave politics and his electoral network is built both for presidential and parliamentary elections.
President Petro Poroshenko in the event of his loss in the elections on March 31 or April 21 will focus on elections to the Parliament (Verkhovna Rada).
This is stated in the article by “Ukrainian Truth” “I. You. He. She. What is ‘Plan B’ for Poroshenko, Tymoshenko, and Zelensky ”.
The President’s team is confident that, regardless of the results of the voting, Poroshenko will remain in politics.
“Petro is not the person who just takes it and disappears. Compared to others, he is quite young and he still has ambitions from which he will not back down,” a member of the current president’s staff assured the “Ukrainian Truth”.
According to media reports, Poroshenko’s electoral network is being built both for presidential and parliamentary elections.
It is reported that Poroshenko is going to go to the election to the Rada as the number one of the PPB Solidarity party. Buy only after this party will be renamed. The new name will remove the mention of Petro Poroshenko and leave only “Solidarity”.
According to the people from the President’s inner circle, the most undesirable option for him is to lose in the first round.
“It will be more painful to lose in the first round. This means that everyone needs to pack their bags and go on a long vacation because of incompetence. In the second round, losing is unpleasant, but losing in the first will be just a catastrophe,” one of the staff officers of Poroshenko admitted.
If he wins the presidential elections, Poroshenko wants to offer the first number in his party’s list to Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman.
According to the plan of the current President, the speaker of Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy and the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Olexander Turchinov should join the “Solidarity”. He also plans to retain Vitali Klitschko’s “UDAR” group.
