The President-actor could be President

just in time for the election of the "right" President for the Ukraine is returned: Since Thursday evening, the third season of "servants of the people" – a series running on TV for the history teacher Vasil Holoborodko, elected on a Youtube Video and a Crowdfunding campaign, all of a sudden to the state President and as a honest is more stable, easier citizens consistently in the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian politics cleans up.

Now the reality with the fiction of The satirist Volodymyr Selensky, embodies Holoborodko for years, and on new year's day in his presidential candidacy announced, prior to the election on Sunday, according to polls, far ahead of Ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and incumbent, Petro Poroshenko.

the girl to the door for more than a decade, a successful television producer, comedian and actor in the Ukraine. As "servants of the people," he was a Superstar. 85 percent of Ukrainians be informed only via television. For them, the President cast as a veritable presidential candidates. As in other countries, many Ukrainians from established politicians are disappointed – most of the President Poroshenko, has prevented over the years, reforms to break the Power of the oligarchs or for the effective combating of corruption, two Grundübeln of Ukraine.

Selensky has no political experience, is for him to trump: A survey of the Kiev Rating group estimated that 47 percent of Ukrainians want, that people without political experience, leading government offices. "In fact, the girl to the door, no experience is to sit – either in the sale of Parliament, Ministerial positions, or voting for laws in the Parliament nor in back-room deals with oligarchs or smuggling with Russia," quips his Advisor Dimirto Razumkov during the conversation in the election campaign, wand, two glass doors separate rooms in a house in Kiev's diplomatic district of Pechersk.

application in the part-time

In a room of a dozen young Ukrainians, the work otherwise for Selenskys production company answered, to Laptops questions of interested voters who turn over the girl to the door-sides on Facebook or Instagram. They also recruit volunteer observers for the approximately 30'000 polling stations. On a glass wall, the latest survey figures – since the weeks with the girl to the door at the top. "Two more days until victory!" next to it. In fact, the comedian is expected to remain on Sunday, far below an absolute majority and would have to on 21. April will go in the runoff election against the second-placed. The would, however, win the girl to the door today, according to the polls, against all possible competitors.

But what happens then? Political ideas presented the girl to the door before his candidacy never. As President Holoborodko he used populist-simple solutions: Since it has been fired to a point short of the entire government, unqualified friends were appointed to key posts. Or is it the head of the International monetary Fund acted as a conspirator, who wanted to grant a new loan only if the Ukraine is a large area for the inclusion of European nuclear waste ready. As a candidate Selensky claimed that the conditions of the IMF were "very harsh" – in fact, the interest rates of IMF loans to Kiev are much lower than market interest rates.

Selenskys ignorance is not surprising: Although he's thinking about a candidacy, he runs the application for the highest public office as a part-time job: The main job Selensky directs his television production Kvartal 95, he turned up in the March of new episodes for "servants of the people" and is touring in November with the help of Kvartal-cabaret troupe the Ukraine. "I don't think we were at the beginning believed in a real chance to win," says an observer.

background A meeting was rather sobering

on the 26. January published a Four-page program Selenskys is a compendium of populism: the people are promised the introduction of direct democracy and referenda, the participation of all Ukrainians in the national wealth from birth, free University of choice for outstanding graduates and Road construction on the Western European level.

background meeting with diplomats of the USA and key EU countries were part of a sobering experience. "Selensky could barely answer a question", said one Participant. It is also questionable whether Selensky is self-employed or Ihor Kolomoyskyi is required, a Ukrainian oligarch and owner of the TV channel 1+1, in the Selensky occurs.

In January the girl to the door, trying to Doubts in its competence the Wind out of the sails Since then, the MP Serhiy Lesch tschenko advise him, as well as Ex-Minister of economy Aivaras Abromavicius, and Ex-Minister of Finance Alexander Daniljuk – all reform politicians with unimpeachable reputation, accompany the girl to the door to further high-level Meetings and reform laws design.

"I think the girl to the door is actually a real change and radical reform," says Daniljuk. "The Ukrainians now choose programs – you vote for the girl to the door, because he is neither Poroshenko nor Tymoshenko. Certainly, as the President Selenskys lack of experience is to the Minus. Then he needs to be very experienced people at his side."

In Russia, is the girl to the door as a satirist is also popular. In January, it turned out that we were on a supposedly closed the subsidiary company to date, revenues from Russia's ongoing productions. At the same time we were promoting in Eastern Ukraine for years, soldiers of the against Russia fighting the Ukrainian army. To end the war, was more pressure from international partners in Moscow, necessary, and direct conversations with the Kremlin, says a consultant of the Razumkov. In the Nato or in the EU a President Selensky would result in the Ukraine "only after country-wide referendums". (Editorial Tamedia)
