Presidential Secretariat has won trial on snap poll
BYuT says it was a farce
The Kyiv Appeal Administrative Court of Ukraine has ruled to cancel the ruling of the District Administrative Court, dated October 10, which suspended the President’s decree on dissolving the Verkhovna Rada, and has closed the legal proceedings on the case.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, the ruling was issued by a board of judges headed by judge Mykhaylo Mezhevych. Thus, the court allowed the appeal of the Presidential Secretariat against the ruling of the District Administrative Court, which had suspended the President’s decree.
“Finally the court gave the proper legal assessment to the case. As of today, it has been proved that the court of first instance did not have any right to issue the ruling [on suspending the President’s decree on the snap poll]. In such a way, the BYuT political force committed political raids”, said Presidential Secretariat’s spokesman Ruslan Kyrylyuk to journalists.
In his turn, MP Valeriy Pysarenko, BYuT’s representative to court, claimed he does not understand at all the today’s ruling of court, because “the court instance cancelled the ruling that had already been cancelled”.
V.Pysarenko compared the today’s developments in court with a farce, and stressed it had no legal sense and grounds.
