Four current members of parliament are running, of whom two are members of the pro-presidential Party of Regions, yet they’re officially running as independents.
There’s also two Kyiv City Council members, a political consultant turned politician, and former professor, now businessman running as well.
Vasyl Gureyev is the pro-presidential candidate. Running as an independent, Gureyev is looking to gain a legislative seat for the fourth consecutive time. He was economy minister and minister of industrial policy in the late 1990s and early 2000s under former President Leonid Kuchma.
