24 hours before the celebrations begin. Vote out the old and bring in the new.

In 24 hours time Ukraine should know the outcome of the 2010 Presidential election.  Yushchenko will have lost office and the two highest polling candidates will progress to the second round of voting.  According to rumours the ballot papers for the second round have already been printed and distributed.  All expectations are that Viktor Yanukovych will face off against Yulia Tymoshenko in what will be seen as the battle of the titans.

Ukraine will begin to celebrate the news that "The president is defeated long live the new president".  Only 2 more hours before the new year really starts with a tigers roar.

If your are undecided who to support we suggest you make your vote count and vote for Tymoshenko in the first round.  Why you may ask. well we feel that Tymoshenko will most likely support Ukraine adopting a parliamentary system of governance.  In our view this is the main criteria and step forward that Ukraine can make.  One important step forward one giant step for Ukraine. A vote for any other candidate is a wasted vote. And a vote for Tigipko would be dangerous and indecisive.
