The Supreme Court of Ukraine did not oblige the Central Election Commission to register the former head of the administration of Viktor Yanukovych Andriy Klyuyev and pro-Russian blogger Anatoliy Shariy as candidates for people’s deputies. This was stated on Wednesday at a briefing by the head of the Cassation Administrative Court within the Supreme Court, Mikhailo Smokovych.
According to him, the court only ordered the CEC to continue the examination of documents.
“The CEC was supposed to continue to consider the application for registration, and I do not comment the results,” said Smokovych, adding that the CEC still has an “instrument for canceling registration” if evidence of violations of the legislation on the necessary conditions for registration is obtained.
The head of the court noted that evidence of the absence of Klyuyev and Shariy on the territory of Ukraine during the last 5 years was not sufficient enough.
