An online petition appeared on President’s website demanding Zelensky resignation.
The petition appeared on May 22 and got a lot of signatures over 24 hours. As of 12 p.m. May 23, almost 13,000 people supported it, which is over a half of the required amount.
The author of the petition stated that the majority of Zelensky’s supporters voted for him on the basis of their protest, which Zelensky has allegedly consolidated but never gave any promises.
“It is an unacceptable situation, when “servant of the people” has no moral commitments before the nation, created during the pre-election period. Therefore, we, the people of Ukraine, demand Your resignation from the post of the President of Ukraine!” the author of the petition stated.
As it is known, petition should get 25,000 votes to be considered.

Zelensky passed the improvised corridor in the park, shaking hands and making selfies with his supporters. The head of the state made the oath the traditional way, with his right hand on Peresopnytsia Gospels and the Constitution of Ukraine. In his bold speech, the new leader announced he would dismiss the Ukrainian Parliament. He also urged the Ukrainian Government to resign if they could not act effectively anymore.
