1 min read

Leader of the Ukrainian political party UDAR, Vitali Klitschko, has announced the opposition parties' decision to call early presidential elections.

"We are calling early presidential elections," Klitschko told a people's assembly on Independence Square in Kyiv on Sunday.

He said the Central Election Commission should be re-elected if the presidential elections are to be honest, adding that the opposition parliamentary factions would meet again on Monday.

Klitschko urged the military to switch over to protesters' side.

Leader of the Svoboda party, Oleh Tiahnybok, proposed that the opposition start shaping what he called "people's government."

"We must start shaping a people's government and parliament, Kyiv authorities, and elect a democratic mayor of Kyiv," he said.

Tiahnybok proposed collecting millions of signatures in order to make people's government legitimate.

Activists of the Automaidan opposition movement earlier urged the opposition leaders to decide who will be the single leader of the campaign and of the pro-EU movement, and who will assume the responsibility.

"Automaidan and Euromaidan are in need of a leader who will guide us to victory. We need a name. We are urging you to name the candidate," a leader of the Automaidan movement, Dmytro Bulatov, said.
