Presidential elections are expected to be held in Ukraine on 31 March 2019.[1][2]

Electoral system[edit]

The President of Ukraine is elected every five years using the two-round system if a candidate can not capture more than 50% of the vote in the first round.[3][4][5] According to Chapter V, Article 103 of the Constitution of Ukraine, candidates should be Ukrainian citizens who have resided in Ukraine for the past ten years prior to election day and have command of the Ukrainian language. Per the Constitution, regular presidential elections are scheduled to be held on the last Sunday of the last month of the fifth year of the incumbent President's term. If the President's authority ends pre-term, then elections must be held within 90 days of the incumbent President's end of term.[4][6][7][8]
