Tymoshenko: No reason to postpone Jan. 17 presidential election in Ukraine
Uzhgorod, November 7 - Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has again said there are no grounds to postpone presidential elections in the country. "I want to emphasize once again that each region has its own epidemic threshold... Quarantine is imposed as soon as the disease rate in any region reaches its peak... So this is an objective approach that has no subjective element, and there are still no grounds to cancel the elections," she said in Uzhgorod on Saturday.The secretariat of the Ukrainian president is already discussing the possible postponement of the presidential election date from January until May 2010 if a state of emergency is declared in the country due to the flu epidemic.
