The Central Election Commission decided to register candidates from the Movement of new forces party at the early parliamentary elections on July 21. This was reported by the Opora civil network.
“The Central Election Commission registered candidates for MPs in single-member districts and multi-mandate constituencies from the Movement of new forces Mikheil Saakashvili's party, as well as a representative of this party in the Central Election Commission,” the statement said.
In addition, registration was also confirmed by the ex-Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine David Sakvarelidze.
“We are already registered! Go to the end! Until the victory!”, he wrote on his Facebook page.
The CEC initially refused to register candidates from the Movement of New Forces party in the multi-member electoral district and in single-mandate electoral districts.
The CEC argued its decision by the fact that the extraordinary party congress of the party, convened on June 10 and approving the electoral list of candidates, "took place in violation of the requirements of the statute of this party."
However, representatives of Saakashvili filed an appeal, and on June 25, the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal in Kiyiv allowed the Movement of new forces party of Mikheil Saakkashvili to participate in early parliamentary elections.
