Record 44 candidates register for Ukraine’s presidential election

The Central Election Commission of Ukraine said a record 44 candidates have registered to compete in the country’s March presidential election. Ukraine’s incumbent President Petro Poroshenko, opposition politician Yulia Tymoshenko and actor Volodymyr Zelensky, who are viewed as front-runners in the presidential race, have been registered as candidates.

The candidates are able to withdraw from the presidential race no later than March 7. In 2004, Ukraine registered the previous record number of 26 candidates, and 21 presidential hopefuls participated in the 2014 campaign.
