The Kyiv Administrative Appeal Court postponed till 11.00 a.m. of Oct 21 the trial on a President’s appeal against the ruling of the Kyiv Regional Administrative Court, which had suspended Yushchenko`s decree on announcing the snap parliamentary poll.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, deputy President’s Chief of Staff Maryna Stavniychuk disclosed this to journalists after the today’s sitting of court.
She stressed that the hearing was postponed because it was necessary to carry out some procedural actions.
In particular, according to M.Stavniychuk, a BYuT representative demanded the court to consider at least 100 another appeals lodged by BYuT lawmakers and Ukrainian citizens, which were included into the administrative suit of BYuT.
Commenting on the developments, M.Stavniychuk noted: “I assess it as a mere dragging out of the process… It’s absolutely evident for me that these procedural actions [of BYuT - UNIAN] are but a clear attempt to hamper the court to consider the President’s appeal, at least, in the nearest several weeks”.
Asked about the date fixed for the snap poll [Dec 7], M.Stavniychuk said: “I believe, today are really critical days for the electoral process, till the end of the week”. She noted there may not be enough time to form regional and local electoral commissions.
