 CEС: the Decision of the European Court will Allow Tymoshenko and Lutsenko to Take Part in the Elections

The European Court of Human Rights may provide an opportunity for the ex prime-minister Yulia Tymoshenko and ex MVS Minister Yuriy Lutsenko to take part in the upcoming parliamentary elections.

This was announced by the deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission (CEC), reports NBN.

"Possibly, there are other mechanisms (to revoke the CEC decision on the inability of Tymoshenko an Lutsenko taking part in the elections)… Particularly, it may be the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR)", said Magera.

He also noted, that the ECHR decision does not automatically come into effect but needs to be implemented by Ukrainian courts.

Also the CEC representative underlined that all previous decisions of ECHR were accepted by the Ukrainian courts.
