The Batkivschyna Party has asked an appeals court to oblige the Central Election Commission (CEC) to add the names of former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko and former Interior Minister of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko to the united opposition's party ticket in the ballot papers for the upcoming parliamentary elections. 

Batkivschyna filed a relevant appeal to Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals.

The text of the appeal reads that, according to the Ukrainian legislation, ballot papers should include the names of the top five candidates on the party ticket. The CEC refused to register Tymoshenko and Lutsenko as parliamentary candidates, while, according to the plaintiff, "refusal to register [a candidate] is not a reason for his or her expulsion from the list."

As reported, Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals earlier threw out an appeal by the Batkivschyna Party against the printing of ballot papers for votes on party tickets without the names of former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko and former Interior Minister of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko on them.

Batkivschyna's representative at the CEC, Ruslan Kniazevych, lodged the appeal to Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals. In turn, CEC member Natalia Larina said that the CEC has sent a reference template for ballot papers for party list voting to the Ukraina Printing House.

The English translation of Ukraine's Constituion does not prevent or deny a candidates nomination . It may prevent their right, if elected, from taking office. much depends on the definition of Interntional crime.
