Выборы в один тур, - это избирательная технология Порошенко, - журналист

Journalist Sergei Leschenko believes that the thesis that elections should be held in one round is a subtle electoral technology of Peter Poroshenko's staff.

He wrote about this in his facebook.

Leshchenko noted: "The" one-round election "is the technological development of Poroshenko's headquarters, which even some of my friends-sober-minded Kyivites-pecked in. Citizens should vote in the first round on the basis of personal convictions, and not because some candidate does not The election in the first round is like choosing from the menu in the restaurant.If you like borscht, choose borscht, even if everyone in the café is ordered by the cabbage soup, which has been cooked very much, and it is profitable for the owner of the restaurant to quickly sell the remains of the cabbage soup. seriously, t about the thesis about the elections in one round is based on the incorrect interpretation of sociological studies, because the rating of Poroshenko 45+ among those who will definitely go to the elections and has exactly decided on their choice.I believe, if Putin thinks of attack, it does not matter for him, elections will be held in one or two rounds.
