The leaders of the election race Poroshenko, Yulia Tymoshenko and Vladimir Zelensky did not participate in the national debate, because I’m used to monologues, and esters. They are afraid of an open discussion between himself and the uncomfortable questions of journalists. Candidates try to avoid the discussion on the debate realize nothing from her win.
About this in comments to journalists 24 channel said the media expert Otar Dovzhenko, a public activist Mykola Vyhovsky and scientific Director of the Fund Democratic initiatives sociologist Iryna Bekeshkina.
Presidential candidates Vladimir Zelensky and Petro Poroshenko came to the debate held on public television “UA: the First”. Yulia Tymoshenko appeared in the Studio, but after a few minutes it left the air.
In principle, feeling the need of an open discussion of our politicians are not. Their strategists realize that they did not win in this debate, and therefore they avoid it. Instead, virtually all election campaigns in a monologue, in a comfortable environment where politicians played up their lured the so-called politicomilitary, experts, and their colleagues at parties,
– said Otar Dovzhenko.
In this format often acted as Tymoshenko and Poroshenko on different TV channels. About Zelensky, he basically avoided the discussion. Different questions the candidate answered only during conversations, which were well prepared and orchestrated. Therefore, the failure of the leaders of the electoral race to take part in the debate were expected. Although until recently there was hope that they want to show their best side.
Dovzhenko noticed that the last normal debate between the main candidates were in Ukraine only in 2004 between ex-presidents Viktor Yushchenko and Viktor Yanukovych.
To legally oblige the candidates to attend the debate will be problematic. According to media experts, there are no objective reasons why, for example, Yulia Tymoshenko should discuss with Petro Poroshenko, not less than a top candidate Ruslan by Rygovanov. After all the debate Tymoshenko-Ragavan would be no interest.
In addition, according to Dovzhenko, their situation will not affect their ratings the day before the election. Society has no understanding of what a debate between the candidates needed. People have long been accustomed, that the politicians are in the mode of monologues and solo performances.
Sociologist Iryna Bekeshkina also noted that the presidential candidates used to go on air with their team, to speak in monologues and to answer easy questions. During the debate on the “Public” there are experts who put pointed questions, check out the truth of those statements and suggestions that Express the candidates. Therefore, they do not want to participate in such discussions.
Today Poroshenko is scheduled to speak in the air of TRK “Ukraine” and Tymoshenko in the air of ICTV channel, then the channel Akhmetov. This is a very convenient format for them.
Mykola Vyhovsky said that is very revealing is the choice of top candidates between oligarchic channels and public broadcasting is not in favor of the latter.
This is a sign for voters. Fear is the most heavy of candidates who used to walk at comfortable ethers, those of the oligarchic channels whose owners they were happy to wait and give them a warm bath. Instead of coming on the public broadcaster, which launched after the revolution of Dignity, the 2 main candidates Tymoshenko and Poroshenko – the first place went to channel TRK “Ukraine” Rinat Akhmetov. But Tymoshenko still going to visit on ICTV Pinchuk. Apparently, Pinchuk and Akhmetov are more convenient to customers than the Ukrainian society
Zelensky, who is also among the top three leaders the election, in principle, afraid to go to debate.
