European parliamentarian Charles Tannock believes parliamentary elections in Ukraine not involving opposition leaders Yulia Tymoshenko and former interior minister Yuriy Lutsenko are a disgrace to the Ukrainian administration, Yulia Tymoshenko’s official website has reported. Tannock made the statement commenting on the Ukrainian Central Elections Commission’s refusal to register Tymoshenko and Lutsenko as candidates to the parliament.
Tannock also said he intends to initiate a separate report by the European parliament on the “undemocratic climate” of the parliamentary elections in Ukraine. Jacek Saryusz-Wolski, a European parliamentarian and vice-president of the European People’s Party, added the Central Elections Commission’s refusal to register the opposition leaders as candidates to the parliament is in line with the Ukrainian administration’s policies.
