Opinion polls
Next year, I believe that there will be no elections in Ukraine at all. Neither parliamentary, nor local, nor presidential - the head of the Servant of the People faction in the Verkhovna Rada, David Arakhamia
Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Elena Kondratyuk: Elections are possible only after the end of martial law. This was supported by almost everyone - both political forces and public organizations. Secondly, we reserve the Electoral Code based on open lists, by the way, with a 40% gender quota
Head of the CEC Oleg Didenko: Ukrainian women who have been in exile abroad for more than 90 days will not have the opportunity to run in elections - this term interrupts the necessary continuous period of residence in Ukraine, which is a condition for running
Head of the CEC Oleg Didenko: Ukraine has evolved to a proportional electoral system with open lists. However, as an exception for post-war Ukraine, from the point of view of election administration, the most favorable is the proportional system with closed lists. In the post-war elections, it is not worth experimenting and introducing something completely new that has not been used so far
Deputy Speaker of the State Department Vedant Patel: The United States does not insist on the need to hold elections in Ukraine next year. As far as I understand, this is in accordance with their Constitution, so we will simply leave it to the discretion of the Ukrainians
Volodymyr Zelenskyi: I believe that now is not the time for elections. Now, in wartime, when there are many challenges, it is absolutely irresponsible to throw the issue of elections into society

Former adviser to the Office of the President Alexey Arestovich proposes holding simultaneous elections in Ukraine and Russia in the spring of 2024.

Head of the Verkhovna Rada Ruslan Stefanchuk: “I turned to my fellow parliamentarians from many parliaments with a request: please give me the experience of your parliaments, how you conducted or did not conduct elections during the war. And now we are exchanging these experiences. I think that in We will have some kind of decision soon"

Vladimir Zelensky: The situation is difficult, but elections in Ukraine can take place if the parliament manages to solve all the problems of ensuring access to voting. It is important to organize elections in a safe way for people to go to vote without being attacked. We have this task, but if our country manages to make changes to the laws, then elections will be held in Ukraine
Head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak: Today there is no pressure on us from any country regarding the elections. But we are smart people, we see that in the USA, for example, even during the war there were elections, therefore, in principle, we need to look at when there is an opportunity to hold elections and not forget about it
Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Elena Kondratyuk: “When rights and freedoms are limited during martial law, holding elections that, on the contrary, require respect for all democratic rights and freedoms, is nonsense. I don’t see electorally that these elections will radically change the situation now.”
People's Deputy of the last three convocations Andrei Ivanchuk has died. According to preliminary data, the cause of death is a blood clot. Ivanchuk was a member of the Dovira deputy group. At the last elections he was elected as a self-nominated candidate in the 88th district (Kolomaia)

Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Innovation Mykhailo Fedorov: Ukraine is not working on the elections at the "Diya" app. There are no informal tasks. We are not working on viborami in Diya. And the CEC does not deal with this, and the parliament does not consider laws
Prime Minister Denis Shmyhal: The Cabinet of Ministers is not an elected body, so the government is least interested in elections. There are no funds allocated for elections in next year's budget. We do not have legal and physical mechanisms, or an understanding of how to carry them out in a war. And, frankly, no one worked on them, because we have a different priority - to liberate our land, and then talk about elections
According to People's Deputy Yaroslav Zheleznyak, the draft state budget for 2024 does not include expenses for holding elections. Thus, as of today, there are no plans to hold elections in 2024, although changes to the budget may be made at any time
RBC Ukraine: “The issue of presidential and parliamentary elections was raised during the last visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The Americans emphasized that they are not exerting any pressure on Ukraine in this regard; whether to hold elections or not is Kiev’s sovereign decision; they are only ready to provide, if necessary, the help you need"
Vladimir Zelensky allowed online elections for Ukrainians abroad: For people abroad to vote, we must use the infrastructure of other states. Or we should conduct elections online there. Here I have a question for our partners: do you recognize these elections online? Here I have a question for our parliament: will you vote for changing the electoral code?
Vladimir Zelensky: Regarding the elections, we are ready. If our people need it. I'm ready for the elections. But this is not a question of democracy, but of security. For us, the main thing is not to hold elections, but to have these elections recognized by the world, because we are a democratic country
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexei Danilov: Holding elections in the conditions in which our country finds itself is a matter of internal destabilization. Ukraine, as a state, must ensure the right to vote for every citizen, which is impossible to do during such an active phase of the war.
German government speaker Steffen Hebeshtreit: Germany considers it important to hold elections in Ukraine, but will not put pressure on Kyiv to organize them in a war
Volodymyr Zelenskyy: By law, we do not have the right to hold elections now, but I am ready for such legislative changes.

Spanish newspaper El Pais sources: The inner circle of the Ukrainian president is now in favor of starting the election race in 2024 to elect the Ukrainian parliament and president.

Vladimir Zelensky: "I don't want the attitude to power that it holds. I don't hold on to anything. I would like to hold elections. I like to do it when we need it, throughout the year"
Vladimir Zelensky: It is forbidden to hold elections. But the Rada can change the legislation if the US and Europe agree to fulfill several conditions: 1. give $5 billion to the elections so as not to withdraw them from the defense budget, 2. observers must be in the trenches, 3. organize the election infrastructure for refugees

Because the military enjoys great public confidence. I am convinced that in any scenario, the next parliament will consist of more than 50% of the military
Oleksandr Kornienko: Now it is impossible to conduct elections in a qualitative manner, because there are many problems regarding the security of voting and the electoral process. In addition, at least three categories of citizens, which now make up half of the population (temporarily displaced citizens abroad, internally displaced persons and military personnel), are still unable to run for office or vote
Some opposition parties are already forming lists of members of election commissions. They are doing this instead of looking for models for holding elections together with the CEC after the victory and the lifting of martial law - First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Korniyenko

NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov: I don't understand how elections can be held during a war? There are people who are in the trenches, who are on the front line.
