October 22 presentation hundred thousand signatures collected is planning to hold a presidential candidate Yaroslav Romanchuk.
"It was to explain where collected, as were about why our signatures are valid, and we believe that this should not be the reason for withdrawal or non-registration of mine."
But what is the prospect of defining a single candidate from the democratic forces? Mr. Romanchuk said:
"We agreed to meet after the registration of those people who really have collected one hundred thousand signatures, and discuss the issue. Indeed, there is no doubt that some people will just hand over the alleged hundred thousand signatures. And how many valid or invalid, do not know. Therefore it will be necessary somehow justify who will be eligible to participate in the procedure, and then we will try to resolve this issue. "
In the action group Victor Tereshchenko argue that gathered 98,560 signatures. He believes that in the next few days will be a hundred thousand mark overcome.

According to the head of the initiative group Alexei Yanukevich, we can not say that there is some agreement on a single candidate.

And on some points we just tactical willing to negotiate, but with some of the candidates, if they are registered, and are ready for more serious negotiations. But will be visible after registration. "
According Yanukevich, the presidential campaign until there is "much more freely than the previous one," although there is evidence of pressure on the pro-democracy activists in the regions.

"The resistance to almost all the candidates and their initiative groups to collect signatures. The people of a certain small part of its just afraid to put their signatures for candidates alternative to the current president now. This is particularly clearly traced in the factories, in public institutions. Are warned that if they put their signatures, they can be a nuisance. "
