In case of a repeated draw, the Printing Plant ‘Ukraine’ will not have time to print all the necessary ballots for snap parliamentary elections. The Central Election Commission stated this.
The Central Election Commission said they disagreed with the decision of the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal on re-balloting.
“The CEC informs that if a new draw is necessary, State Enterprise Printing Plant ‘Ukraine’ will not be able to print the required number of ballots in time and deliver them for voting in the nationwide multi-mandate constituency,” the statement said.
“Ensuring the rights of one subject of electoral process cannot violate the rights and legitimate interests of other subjects of electoral process and legal process of the process,” the CEC notes.
It is also noted that Decree of CEC of June 26, 2019 on approval of the form, color and text of the ballot was not appealed against and remains in force.
As it was reported earlier, 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. Head of the Central Election Commission Tatiana Slipachuk reported that 5.2 million of ballots are already printed.
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.
