On May 23, the Supreme Court received two claims demanding that presidential decree No. 303/2019 dated May 21, 2019, on early termination of the mandate of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the appointment of early elections be ruled null and void, the court said on its website.

Both claims were filed by individuals.

Under the Code of Administrative Procedure of Ukraine, a judge shall rule on the procedural actions within five days since a claim is filed, the court said.

The court said it would inform on further procedural steps in the two cases.

As UNIAN reported earlier, new President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on May 21, 2019, signed an order to disband Ukraine's parliament and set snap parliamentary election for July 21.

On May 23, coordinator of NGO Spilna Sprava Oleksandr Danylyuk announced that his organization had appealed against the presidential order in the Supreme Court.

What is more, the People's Front parliamentary faction said it was going to lodge a motion with the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to rule the parliament dissolution order as unconstitutional.
