Saakashvili asks people if he should join Klitschko in elections
Kiev Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko invited former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili to become a chairman of his UDAR Party to participate in Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada elections.
Saakashvili praised Klitschko and requested help from his supporters in making the decision.
"If I accept the offer, we will have to wholly change the UDAR party as there are many people who were loyal to Petro Poroshenko and several others involved in corruption," Saakashvili wrote on his Facebook page..
He said in his video address today that "it is not good to observe the situation passively, when [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky needs help," Agenda.ge reported.
Saakashvili, who returned to Ukraine on the second day after the restoration of his citizenship "to help Zelensky fulfill his election promises," says that his Movement of New Forces face difficulties to run in the July 21 parliamentary elections in Ukraine.
