The Pechersk District Court of Kyiv allowed former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili to run for the early parliamentary elections.
The court confirmed the fact of his five-year residence in Ukraine, which is a prerequisite for participation in elections.
“The court made a fair decision regarding my ability to participate in parliamentary elections. Another step closer to victory,” Saakashvili wrote on the Facebook page.
Recall that Saakashvili was absent in Ukraine from February 2018 to May 2019 (when he was expelled from the country). According to Ukrainian legislation, only those citizens of Ukraine who have been resident on its territory for the last five years before the elections can become People’s Deputies.
