Former WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has confirmed that he will once again run for Mayor of Kiev.
The 43 year-old, who ruled over the top division with an iron fist before retiring in 2012, is already enjoying as stint as the Head of Kyiv City’s State Administration, but will aim to continue in his role for another term
Klitschko is also the leader of the UDAR party in his home country and rubberstamped his intentions in an interview with Livy Bereh Internet publication that he seeks to stay in the mayor’s office.
“I have a lot of plans and the foundation for the further implementation of reforms. And I have to follow them through, make it so that Kyiv should become a truly European city,” the elder Klitschko brother said.
Klitschko’s UDAR party also plan to be involved in the upcoming local elections which could eventually see the ex-fighter run for President of Ukraine.
