The public outcry around the registration of ex-head of presidential administration of Yanukovych Andriy Klyuyev and blogger Anatoliy Shariy as a candidate for MP will allow finding new information, which allows canceling their registration, as Ukrinform reported citing Central Election Commission Secretary Natalia Bernatska.
“We even do not understand where the Supreme Court sent us by its decision; which evidence we should look for. When we made a decision on the refusal to Klyuyev and Shariy we appealed to all possible departments. Thanks to such outcry, which took place, possibly, some impetus will be given to the law enforcement bodies and we will be provided with new evidence, which was not estimated by the Supreme Court. We are a state body, and we cannot provide the refusals, which are not grounded or they will be abolished by a court in two days,” Bernatska explained.
She reminded that earlier the Supreme Court recognized the evidence provided by the Central Election Commission that refusal for Klyuyev and Shariy were legal as insufficient. Then the commission has no other way but fulfills the decision of the court and registers the candidates.
“We are banned by the law to make such decisions, which absolutely repeat the canceled one; we need new evidence, new grounds,” she specified.
On July 2, the Central Election Commission registered Andry Klyuyev as a candidate for MPs in Donetsk region. The commission explained by the decision of the Supreme Court.
Cassation Administrative Court as part of the Supreme Court stated it considered only the evidence provided by the Central Election Commission and it was not enough to state that Klyuyev has not been living in Ukraine for the last five years.
