"I will take part [in elections] to fight for making specific decisions," he added.

He also mentioned the need to address the issue of the new electoral system.

"This issue needs to be resolved before the elections - the issue of a new electoral system. The parliament passed a good law at the first reading, which can be finalized by the second reading, which concerns open party lists," Groysman said.
