This was attorney General Yuriy Lutsenko said in an interview with TSN.

Journalists asked what the head of state is discussing the presidential elections, Lutsenko answered: “the President discusses the matter in the circle of his election headquarters”.

“I, thank God, are not and cannot be a member of the election headquarters. But as far as I know, he is now being formed,” – said Lutsenko.

“My job involves ensuring the rule of law during this very difficult and politicized period (elections.- Gazeta.ua). How can I help the President? The effectiveness of their work in the office of the attorney General. There is a very big discussion, it is beneficial when the public Prosecutor leads the court to the Chairman of district or regional state administration. My principal position is Yes, it works in favor of the government. Some say no, as so, it’s official. There is another debate: whether it is possible to prevent similar actions to the opposition, say that it is political persecution. If you do the first legally pursue the authorities – can do and the second. From my point of view, this is called objectivity,” he said.

Lutsenko also said that Poroshenko offered him the post of Prime Minister.

“At the moment, Ukraine has not exhausted its possibilities. Moreover, I consider myself a joint policy team with the current Prime Minister and that former Prime Minister,” he said.
