Sixth Appeal Administrative Court ruled to hold the re-draw of the order of the political parties on the ballots for the snap parliamentary elections in Ukraine as 112 Ukraine reported.

“The Central Election Commission is obliged to hold the re-draw on the order of the political parties until they will be located on the ballot. The trial lasted for two days. There was no such situation practice during the election process in Ukraine,” the message said.

Head of the Central Election Commission Tatiana Slipachuk reported that 5.2 million of ballots are already printed.  

“It is hard for me to comment all legal aspects of the adopted decision but I report you that this event aims for disruption of the elections,” she said as Ukrayinska Pravda reported.

The Central Election Commission will appeal this decision.

The Agrarian Party of Ukraine filed the lawsuit with the demand to hold the re-draw. Its representative thinks that the putting of Mikheil Saakashvili’s Rukh Novykh Syl Party on the ballot on June 29, three days after the draw, is a violation of the rights of all political parties, which participate in the election process.

Earlier the Central Election Commission made a decision to cancel the registration of ex-head of the presidential administration of Yanukovych Andriy Klyuyev and blogger Anatoliy Shariy as candidates for MP for parliamentary elections.
