Victoria Sumar: European Solidarity is only political force that shows a significant increase in electoral support

European Solidarity is the only national party that has demonstrated a significant increase in electoral support as a result of the local elections, says MP Victoria Sumar (ES).

In particular, the lawmaker stressed that European Solidarity is the only party that won first place in five regions – Lviv, Ternopil, Rivne, Kyiv regions and the city of Kyiv. 

“We are one of the two political forces in the country that have passed to all regional councils. At the same time, European Solidarity is the only political force in the country that has passed all city councils of regional centers. No other political force has achieved such a result. Only European Solidarity is represented in all regional councils as well as in all city councils of regional centers,” Sumar stressed.

She also drew attention to a poll by the Rating Group, which found a sharp drop in support for the Servant of the People party and a rise in European Solidarity.

“They formed regional councils and formed district councils of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, taking in fact one vote – one voter. And we see that now the figures of the aggregate rating of parties look like this: 14.5% in Servants of the People, European Solidarity – 13.7%, OPZZh – 12.5%, For the Future – 8.6%,” Batkivshchyna – 8.5%. All other political forces have not taken the 5 percent threshold,” Sumar said. 

“If we look at the percentage of growth for each political party, we can see that the EU is the only political force in Ukraine that is showing steady growth today. Compared to the last parliamentary campaign, the EU has grown by almost 70%. Instead, the Servant of the People fell by almost 20% – from 43%, which they had in the parliamentary elections, to 14.5%. There is also a drop of about 5% in the OPZZh, while Batkivshchyna remains quite stable, as the last elections show,” the deputy said.
