The change of power in Ukraine is a success for the young democracy. On Newcomer Selenskyj many tasks now. The most important thing: not to disappoint His voters as his predecessor.
The most important message of the Evening: The Ukraine will be able to again after many years of a democratic change of power at the top of your state. The President was voted out of office. Such a thing is rare in the post-Soviet States. Ukraine's new speaker Volodymyr Selenskyj said in the evening in the direction of the other successor States of the Soviet Union: "Look at us! Everything is possible!"
Because of a political outsider to the state, is elected the head, is usually unthinkable. Whether in the case of Vladimir Putin in Russia and Alyaksandr Lukashenka in Belarus - who wins, there long before the election date.
But Selenskyj has not won because he is the candidate of choice of the Ukrainians. And he knows it. "I'm the result of your error, and promises," said Selenskyj to Poroshenko addressed in the "stadium duel" of the presidential candidates on Friday. "I'm not your enemy, I'm your judgment!"

with no errors Poroshenko as President, it would not have brought Selenskyj so far. 2014 the fresh after the Maidan-Revolution elected President promised to end the war in the Donbass within two weeks. However, the war continues to this day.
Poroshenko also promised to fight corruption. However, the creation of an anti-corruption investigation agencies is not sufficient, the appropriate Anti-corruption court has taken up its work today. Also, the crucial reform of the judiciary has not revealed it yet. In major cities of the country grass, the corruption and Poroshenko magnetized doing nothing about it.Poroshenko-bearing worries about Russian influence
this is The view of the majority of voters. "I'm going to disappoint you, never!", Selenskyj is now saying on election night in front of his followers. And like its predecessor promises. It could be the biggest danger for the 41-year-old Newcomer. Now he needs to know to create what is not managed Poroshenko in five years - without the political System of the Ukraine from the inside.
it is also about ending the war in the East.
the end of the war, to the detriment of Ukraine is the main concern of Poroshenko and its supporters. The now deselected, President Poroshenko comes around on election night, not to praise first, the fair Ukrainian elections, however, immediately on his Twitter Account behind heart Uschi just that the leadership in Russia would celebrate in the light of the results now, certainly. In the Kremlin, “believe [you], with a new inexperienced President, Ukraine could sphere back in the impact.”
this is not Selenskyjs goal should be clear. Even if the new President has often expressed only very vaguely to his concrete political goals, he wants to put in the way of Ukraine towards the European Union. He wants to leave over a NATO accession of Ukraine to the vote. And also his appearance on election night sends a clear signal that Ukraine is not going to throw back the influence of the Kremlin.information campaign planned
The worry of Poroshenko's supporters is, rather, that the new President might make from inexperience concessions and Ukraine lose areas. The Crimea. Or, the breakaway of the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.
this is a concern of statements Selenskyjs was Fuelled during the election campaign. He had hinted, with Russia's President Putin meet and want to talk. Or he had called in the TV duel, the authorities in Donetsk and Lugansk as "rebels" - in spite of the in the Ukraine, the usual use of language, to fight against the "Russian Aggressor".
One of Selenskyjs first measures to be taken to be an information war in the Ukraine in the East, he announced on election night. There, the Ukraine, the Russian Propaganda has to set against so far.next election campaign is already before
Poroshenko does not want to drag on despite the defeat of the policy. He wants to defend his achievements. The independent Ukrainian Church and the promotion of the Ukrainian language - from his point of view, in addition to strengthening the army. Even Selenskyj on election night, has announced that it is to promote the Ukrainian language. But he himself comes from the Russian-speaking South and is likely to be more receptive to the concerns of the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine as Poroshenko, has set the election campaign on a nationalist-Patriotic course, in favour of the Ukrainian.
However, to be able to successfully govern, it must take care of Selenskyj now to the next election: that of the Parliament. Since the President has in the Ukraine in a weaker position than, for example, the French, needs Selenskyj to the successful Rule of a strong majority in Parliament. In the autumn, will be elected. The party of "servants of the people" is already registered, but the real party structures are not yet existent.
a model could be France, where managed, Emmanuel Macron, with the "En Marche", the building of a new party. Macron is also the only President, the Selenskyj before the second ballot has visited.Ukraine: The end of a bizarre election campaign, 20.04.2019 presidential election in Ukraine: exchange of blows in the stadium, 19.04.2019 Atlas |Ukraine |Kiev
