Yushchenko registered as a nominee for presidential election

Yushchenko registered as a nominee for presidential election

President Viktor Yushchenko filed on Tuesday the documents to register as a candidate in upcoming presidential election, though the public polls don't give me much hope.

Opinion polls point to Viktor Yanukovych, the president's opponent in the 2004 race, but pollsters say none of the candidates is likely to garner the 50% plus one vote required to avoid a runoff.

Five people have formally registered as contenders, including Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn, ex-defense minister Anatoliy Hrytsenko and Communist leader Petro Symonenko.

The registration deadline is November 9.

Yushchenko addressed his supporters near the Central Election Commission building after he submitted the documents.
