He said this during live broadcast at the Ukraina TV channel.

 

"I can say it right now: the post of the National Bank's governor holds no interest for me," Tihipko said.

 

He mentioned that the position of the NBU governor is not a political post, which is why it is unsuitable for him as party leader now.

 

At the same time, Tihipko believes that the issue of replacement of the NBU governor is timely and that a new President should promptly propose to the Verkhovna Rada a new candidate to replace current NBU governor Volodymyr Stelmakh.

 

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, presidential elections took place on January 17.

 

According to different exit polls, Tihipko won the third place following Party of Regions' leader Viktor Yanukovych and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

 

On January 14, Tihipko accused Stelmakh of his open support to President Viktor Yuschenko under conditions of confrontation between the President and the Cabinet of Ministers.

 

Five-year term of National Bank Governor Volodymyr Stelmakh expired on December 16, 2009.
