'I can not': Zelensky responded to a petition for his resignation as president of Ukraine
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in response to a petition for his resignation, said that he could not leave this post for “objective and understandable” reasons.
The answer of the head of state is made public on his official Online.
“Every conscientious and responsible citizen knows that the Constitution of Ukraine clearly defines the conditions under which the president of the country must leave his post. Their list is indicated in Article 108 of the Basic Law of our country. So, “the powers of the President of Ukraine are terminated early in the event of: resignation; inability to exercise their powers for health reasons; removal from office by way of impeachment; death, "- said in the introductory part of Zelensky's answer.
The President added: “For objective and, I hope, understandable reasons, I cannot leave my post in accordance with paragraphs 1, 2 and 4”.
He explained that, first of all, “he cannot neglect the will of 73% of voters” who supported him.
“Secondly, of course, I get tired (especially in the old office with the haunted communism in the closets), but overall I feel pretty good. And I plan to continue to maintain good physical shape, ”Zelensky admitted.

At the same time, he offered the signatories of the petition to demand from the parliament the speedy adoption of the law on impeachment, the draft of which the president submitted to the Verkhovna Rada on May 29.
“The support of the people's deputies for this bill, with which I am beginning to fight for the removal of immunity from all officials and the process of tough cleansing of the government from old corrupt politicians, will allow you to seek my resignation in a legal, and most importantly, real way,” he explained.
