The all-Ukraine poll, initiated by President Volodymyr Zelensky on October 25, will be financed by the Servant of the People political party. This is stated by the party.
"Five Questions from the President of Ukraine" - Who will fund this study? We give an official answer - the political party Servant of the People will do it. Such decision was made at a meeting of the party's high council on October 20," the message says.
The party assured that they would not hold the research on their own, but would conclude an agreement with a company that conducts sociological polls. Its staff, who will do the research, will be located outside the polling stations.
The Servant of the People added that “such a poll is one of the points of the party's pre-election program for the development of direct democracy in Ukraine.” “Thus, we would like to create a tradition, to work out a mechanism through which the authorities will hear the opinion of the people constantly and regularly,” the statement says.
On October 13, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky appealed to the citizens and urged them to come to polling stations on October 25 and vote.
