Ukrainian Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko


The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

The Communist Party of Ukraine has formed lists of candidates for deputies by joining new people with professionals in single-member districts, Ukrainian Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko said live on Chernihiv Regional Television on Tuesday.

Symonenko said that as part of the renovation of the party, the list includes a lot of young people who were included in the upper part of the list so that they were able to work in parliament after the elections.

"Our party has combined youth and experience with such lists. Our general lists include about 70 people who hold senior positions, ten entrepreneurs, and two students," he said.

Symonenko noted that the most experienced first secretaries of the party's regional committees had been delegated to single-member districts where voters know them well, and where they will get support.

As reported, Symonenko will head the list of the Communist Party in the elections to the Verkhovna Rada. The top five of the list will also include MP Petro Tsybenko, MP Spiridon Kilinkarov, Head of Dnipropetrovsk Medical Academy Iryna Spirina, and First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Komsomol Organization of Ukraine Oleksandr Prysiazhniuk. The party list will also include First Vice Speaker Adam Martyniuk, MP Yevhen Marmazov, MP Oleksandr Holub, MP Ihor Alekseyev, and MP Serhiy Hordiyenko.

The parliamentary elections are scheduled for October 28.
