“A good friend of mine Andriy Parubiy will be on the list,” Poroshenko said at the session.
The session of the political party European Solidarity is taking place in Kyiv, where its leader represents the list of candidates from the party.
Parubiy entered the Verkhovna Rada of the present convocation as a member of the National Front party.
Earlier, Petro Poroshenko's Bloc party has officially changed its name. From now on, it will be known as European Solidarity. According to the political force's press service, the decision was made and approved during the convention on May 24.
The parliamentary election campaign kicked off in Ukraine on May 24, the day after the release of the respective presidential decree. Head of the state Volodymyr Zelensky signed the document, which rules that the Ukrainian Parliament of the eighth convocation is disbanded. So, these elections will be the early ones, and the line-up of the Parliament will change already this summer.
