Sluha Narodu Party goes into politics, presidential candidate Zelenskyi says

Ukrainian showman Volodymyr Zelenskyi has announced that the Sluha Narodu (Servant of the People) Party, a member of which he calls himself, goes into politics.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, Zelenskyi said in a comment to the NikVesti online news site.

Asked whether he goes into politics, he said: "The Sluha Narodu Party goes. Volodymyr Zelenskyi is part of the Servant of the People Party."

Zelenskyi said he was not yet ready to name other party members and added that they are now "engaged in legal and financial matters, are creative people and have grown up with him."

When a journalist compared Zelenskyi with singer Sviatoslav Vakarchuk, who had not yet publicly declared his plans to go into politics, Zelenskyi said: "I did not say that I go or I do not go. First, we are far from similar to Vakarchuk. [...] We have the Sluha Narodu Party, and it goes into politics."
