Court refuses to cancel Zelensky's registration as presidential candidate
The Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal has refused to cancel the registration of Volodymyr Zelensky as a presidential candidate in Ukraine.
The court made the corresponding decision at a meeting in the early hours of Sunday.
Thus, the court rejected the lawsuit filed by election observer from the public organization "Ukrainian Shareholders Association" Andriy Hilko.
It was reported that at 9 p.m. on Saturday the Sixth Court of Appeals would start hearing Hilko's lawsuit seeking "recognition of instances of voter-bribing violation and the overturning of the CEC [Central Election Commission] resolution №153 of January 30, 2019, to register Zelensky as a candidate."
In his opinion, the distribution of free tickets to the debates at the NSC Olympiyskiy on April 19 by Zelensky's team on a special website was a "voters' bribing."
The court ruled that the claimant's demands on the issue of free-of-charge tickets for debates, coordinated by the two presidential candidates, to be recognized as voters' bribing, are unreasonable and cannot be allowed.
