No third term
82% of Ukrainians oppose any proposal to allow President Leonid Kuchma to run for presidency in 2004 presidential elections, according to the results of a poll conducted by the Institute of Social Monitoring.

Kuchma less impopular in Crimea
According to the poll, 60% of respondents expressed categorical opposition to the possibility of nomination of Kuchma for a third term while 22% said they would most likely oppose it. The largest numbers of respondents who oppose nomination of Kuchma for a third term are inhabitants of Kyiv (73%), central regions of Ukraine (72%), and western Ukraine (63%). The smallest number is in the Crimea (40%).

Prohibition
The Institute of Social Monitoring polled 2,053 people in 119 villages and cities throughout Ukraine from October 23 to 29. According to earlier reports, a group of parliamentarians asked the Constitutional Court to clarify whether Kuchma can participate in the 2004 presidential elections. The Constitution of Ukraine prohibits one person to hold the presidential office for more than two consecutive presidential terms.

Expiration date: Autumn 2004
The opposition repeatedly accused Kuchma of planning to seek for the third term. Kuchma's second term will expire in autumn, 2004.
