Ukrainian president Zelensky says second term possible

At a press conference dedicated to the first anniversary of the inauguration, the Urkainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that one electoral term may not be enough for him, reports.

Journalists asked Zelensky whether a single term would be enough for him.

“Honestly? One will not suffice,” said Zelensky.

He added that it’s up to people to decide how long his staying in power will last. Answering the question of journalists whether he’s going to run for a second term, Zelensky said:

“I will think about it”.

“In general, as a man who has been running the state for a year since the inauguration, but we understand that when I start working. Remember, when we submitted our draft laws from the President of Ukraine and until we rebooted the Verkhovna Rada and changed the government, we did not pass anything,” the President said.

“Any candidate who has a percentage of 10, 15 or 16 at the beginning of any election campaign has no right to run for president. They simply do not have the right. Because it means one thing: the society does not support them,” he added.

Mr Zelensky said that if the Ukrainian people support him, he will think about a second term.

Before the election, however, Zelensky promised to change the country in one presidential term and hand it over to the new president.
