Eighteen to run for Ukraine's presidency
Eighteen people will run in Ukraine's presidential election on January 17, 2010.
The term when a candidate could reapply for registration if their initial registration application was rejected expired on November 11.
The Central Election Commission should decide by November 13 whether to register those whose applications have been accepted.
Apart from the 18 candidates, a number of other nominees who also submitted their applications to the Central Election Commission, including former major of the presidential state guard Mykola Melnychenko. But none of them have a chance to be registered as they have not paid the mandatory election deposit of UAH 2.5 million.
