Ukraine's Central Election Commission will register ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko and former interior minister Yuriy Lutsenko as parliamentary candidates if the court allows, said Central Election Commission Vice Chairman Andriy Mahera.

"If these two persons get the approval, the Central Election Commission will comply with the Higher Administrative Court's decision. Whatever its content, it will take effect the moment it is pronounced," Mahera told the press on Monday, Aug. 13.
