There's a chance that snap parliamentary and presidential elections could take place in Ukraine. Viktor Medvedchuk, the Chairman of Political Board of Opposition Platform - For Life party said so in the talk show at 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"As for what Mr. Zelensky is going to do, I'd like to say that in conditions of the coronavirus, in conditions of economic crisis, which, I suspect, is going to be one of the toughest crises over all years of independence of Ukraine (...) the government has to think well. I already said this: if it lacks skills, if it lacks confidence, and these skills and confidence can't be converted into certain actions aimed at the interests of our citizens, it can't remain in power. So they've got to make decisions. This is why when they say there will be early parliamentary elections, I say - why the parliamentary elections? Yes, our party (...) is ready to campaign not just today, but also tomorrow and after tomorrow. We're ready to show people what we aspire for, what we did, what we're going to achieve and what we're sure about. Is the government ready to be held accountable for its actions (...)? Because if we take a look at the polls, 83 percent of respondents can't see any achievements in combating corruption, which is one of the key features of the government's work. 25 percent believe that the actions of Mr. Zelensky are successful, and 70 percent don't. In December, that number made only 50%. Isn't that a proof that the government should either change its politics - both internal and external ones - and recruit a team of professionals who are capable of chaning the situation in the country or leave these places. And then, the country shoud expect not only early parliamentary election, but also early presidential elections", he said.
