According to a recent poll, the electorate in Central Ukraine support in the presidential election the leader of the Radical party, Oleg Lyashko.
However, the candidate continues to gain popularity in the Western, Northern and Eastern regions of the country.
This is evidenced by the results of the study, which was conducted from 5 to 14 March, the experts of the Kiev international Institute of sociology, Sociological group “Rating” and the Ukrainian centre for economic and political studies named after Alexander Razumkov.
The experts came to the conclusion that the greatest electoral support Oleg Lyashko enjoys in the cities and villages of the Central part of the country. In fact, the Central region will massively vote for Lyashko. However, sociologists point out the serious position of the leader of the Radical party in the West and North of Ukraine.
According to the head of the Center for applied political studies “Penta” Volodymyr Fesenko, the data of the survey are not in doubt.
“The Central region has always been the base for Oleg Lyashko. The leader of the Radical party supported primarily rural residents that are most sensitive to social issues. Therefore, in the center of Ukraine Lyashko, in my opinion, will have good results”, – considers Fesenko.
The political scientist believes that the most popular Lyashko is affected by its openness to the people.
“If we talk about Central Ukraine, in the region Lyashko your. His native region – Chernihiv. He speaks to people in accessible and understandable language. And this is the main factor. Besides, Lyashko raises issues that most concern residents of these regions. It helps to decide what hurts people. So, quite naturally, the people support it,” summed up Volodymyr Fesenko.
March 5, 2019, the leader of the Radical party and the leadership of the Federation of employers of Ukraine signed a Memorandum on joint action to revive the industrial sector of the economy. This event, experts have called a demonstration of the growing electoral confidence to Oleg Lyashko in the industrial regions of Eastern Ukraine.
