Zelensky BANS All Future Elections in Ukraine: “We Must Protect Democracy”

Zelensky bans all future elections in Ukraine to protect democracy.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced a ban on all future elections in Ukraine in order to “protect democracy.”

Zelensky, who has already imprisoned opposition party leaders and enacted a gargantuan censorship, is now demanding that the country unite behind him to avoid ‘pointless’ political discussion.

Per Reuters:

“In his nightly video address, Zelensky said it was critical to concentrate on the military challenges facing Ukraine as it tries to push out Russian forces occupying nearly one-fifth of its land more than 20 months after launching their invasion.

‘We all understand that now, in wartime, when there are many challenges, it is utterly irresponsible to engage in topics related to an election in such a frivolous manner’, he said.

‘We need to recognize that this is a time for defense, a time for battle, upon which the fate of the state and its people depend… I believe that elections are not appropriate at this time’.”

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: Zelensky previously stated that he would be prepared to hold the vote ‘if Ukraine secured the assistance’ it needed.

But now there is what appears to be a rift in the country’s leadership, after the Ukraine’s top commander Zaluzhny declared that the war had come to a ‘stalemate’ – an interpretation which Zelensky denied.

“On Monday, Zelensky said that if it proved necessary to end divisive talk, there were state structures ‘capable of making those decisions and providing all the necessary answers to society’. He also said it was vital the state’s institutions were fully behind the war effort ‘and not on paving stones or street repairs’.”

The Hill reported:

“Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska said in September that she did not know whether her husband would run for reelection in 2024. She also said at the time that the country’s ability to organize a free and fair election could factor into whether he would run for a second term.

‘It will also depend whether our society would need him as a president, if he will feel that Ukrainian society will no longer wish him to be the president, he will probably not run’, Zelenska said at the time. ‘But I will support him whatever decision he takes’.”
