UGCC Head gives advice to Ukrainians on parliamentary elections
The snap elections to the Ukrainian parliament will take place on July 21, 2019. The CEC completed the registration process on June 25. More than 2,000 candidate MPs on the electoral lists of 21 political parties have been registered.
In an interview with RISU, the head of the UGCC advised Ukrainians on the elections.
“So we say that it’s necessary to vote responsibly. I am sorry that sometimes our people absolutely do not analyze what one or another politician is proposing. They vote for someone who proposes absolutely nothing, perhaps because he or she speaks eloquently to them. It’s necessary to analyze very seriously what type of political force you are voting for, because each political force is similar to a certain pull which goes in a certain direction. But when we are at the train station and look at the schedule of various trains, we find out where the train is going, where it will bring us, in particular, through which stations. It’s necessary to know where our parliamentarians want to lead us, what the final goal of one or another political force which we want to join or support with our vote is. For if we have an irresponsible attitude towards this, we will support an irresponsible government.”
The head of the UGCC also reminded Ukrainians of the voter's memo which was approved by the Synod of the Bishops of the UGCC
