An online petition for resignation of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky collected 25,000 signatures, the required number for its consideration as presidential website reported.
Thus, the required number of people supported the petition in quite short term. It should be filed for the consideration of the head of state and the president should provide the official response.
“The unacceptable situation appears, when the “servant for people” has no moral obligations formed during the election process before his people. That is why we, people of Ukraine, demand your immediate resignation from the post of the president of Ukraine,” the author of the petition stated.
Volodymyr Zelensky assumed the office and became the sixth president of Ukraine. The solemn ceremony of inauguration took place in Kyiv on Monday, May 20. The new head of the state greeted the audience that welcomed him at Mariinsky Park in the downtown Kyiv. 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.
