Yatseniuk under pressure to withdraw from race to bolster Yushchenko’s support

Yushchenko is applying the pressure to have Yatseniuk pull out of the presidential race. Even though Yatseniuk has better chances of surviving the election then Yushchenko.

Yushchenko yesterday called on the Ukrainian “Democrats” to support a single candidate for president.

The Forum of Ukrainian Nationalists has addressed to presidential candidates Oleh Tiahnybok, Yuriy Kostenko and Arseniy Yatseniuk to withdraw their candidates in favor Viktor Yuschenko.

Yesterday Yatseniuk stated that he would not withdraw from the race. Nor should he. Yushchenko has a lower support rating then Yatseniuk
All the polls say that Yushchenko is not able to win a contest against Yanukovych. Ukrainians no longer trust or respect him. It would make more sense if Yushchenko resigned and offered his support to Yatseniuk.

Meanwhile Yulia Tymoshenko is thinking on similar lines “All our democratic candidates, who will participate in the first roundif they are so eager to do this… In the second round, I am sure thatYanukovych will be there, I would ask all them to unite and support asingle candidate from the democratic sector, to oppose the loomingevil, which is already hanging over Ukraine,” she said.
