“I would like to debunk some myths that have existed since the 2012 elections. The first one is that an opposition candidate will automatically win the election of Kyiv mayor,” managing partner at the National Anti-Crisis Group Taras Zahorodniy said at a press conference on Tuesday.
He referred to the results of a survey conducted by Active Group. He said that according to the survey, 14% are ready to vote for a government candidate, current head of Kyiv City State Administration Oleksandr Popov, and 27.5% are confident in his victory.
According to the expert, this can be explained by the fact that the government has a better mobilization potential than the opposition. In particular, the government can do this through municipal and social services.
