Ukrainian showman Volodymyr Zelensky has filed the documents to the Central Election Committee to register his candidacy for the presidential run in Ukraine. As it was reported earlier, Volodymyr Zelensky has his s41st birthday today as well.
“I have a double birthday today. First, human birthday, secondly – I have a birthday as a politician. That’s why I am very pleased to be here. I am very glad that my closest friends – my peers from Kvartal 95 (Ukrainian private company producing audio-visual content and performing concert activity, - ed.), my lawyers, managers, new people in our Servant of the People political party. They are here with me, and my family, and all my relatives. I am very serious about our country, in the life of every citizen,” Zelensky said.
The presidential candidate told about his electoral program.
“We involved our internet community into our Ze-team, they joined us, we untied their ideas and our program. We also met the experts. It will be a frame program, though we will complete it. Now I address everyone: please cut it alive – add the program, criticize it, and show us what the program should look like at the end when we defeat everybody and prove that we are the coolest. The program is called The Country of Dreams,” he added.
Volodymyr Zelensky also added couple words in English for the world media, when he approached the journalists.
Volodymyr’s video announcement was broadcasted on the 1+1 channel, a few minutes prior to midnight on January 31, when the other TV channels were showing the speech of the President Petro Poroshenko. This is why Poroshenko’s New Year address on 1+1 was shown later.
According to Zelensky, every Ukrainian has three options: to live without paying attention to what is going on around, to move to another country in search of a better life, or act like him.
Besides, the showman is celebrating his 41st birthday today.
The results of the elections shall be established up to April 10, 2019, inclusively.
