Klitschko, whose party is one of three holding a convention today, called on democratic forces to unite behind Poroshenko as the sole candidate in the race. 

 “The only chance to win is to nominate a single candidate from the democratic forces. Let’s leave the principle ‘two Ukrainians – three hetmans’ to other politicians. During the last year I had been insisting on nominating one candidate… It should be the candidate who has the greatest support of citizens. I offer the only candidate from the democratic forces Petro Poroshenko be supported in the presidential elections,” Klitschko said at a meeting of the UDAR Party in Kyiv on March 29.

“I have made the considered decision to run for Kyiv mayor,” Klitschko said. “I want to make Kyiv a really European capital, and we should do our country a truly European country. All the reforms and all initiatives start in the capital.”
