Presidential candidate and prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who heads the eponymous bloc, has said she will go into opposition if not elected the president.
Tymoshenko announced this in the Great Politics talk show on the Inter television channel on Friday evening.
"Although I have faith in the victory, but if any other option happens, I will simply go into opposition," said Tymoshenko.
The prime minister complained of some flaws in the election legislation and expressed confidence of attempts to be made by her opponents to carry out the vote rigging.
The Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko will monitor the work of election commissions to suppress the vote rigging, the presidential candidate said.
International observers will also facilitate the suppression of the vote rigging, she said.
Tymoshenko called on other presidential candidates sharing the democratic values to support her during the second tour of the presidential elections.
As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Party of Regions Faction Leader Viktor Yanukovych, a presidential candidate, does not see any opportunity for Yulia Tymoshenko to be the prime minister if he is elected the president.
