The Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine has ruled on August 21, 2012 that the registration of football-player Andriy Shevchenko as a parliamentary candidate from the Ukraine-Forward! Party by the Central Election Commission (CEC) was legal.

As reported by official representative of the party at the CEC, lawyer of Pavlenko & Poberezhnyuk Law Group Oleksandr Pavlenko, the Higher Administrative Court pronounced such a ruling on an appeal of a parliamentary candidate from the Our Ukraine Party, Artem Hluschenko, against the CEC's decision following an eight-hour hearing. The ruling of the court is final and not subject to appeal.

By this appeal Hluschenko disputed a relevant ruling of Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals dated August 17 on his lawsuit against the CEC regarding the lawfulness of the registration of Shevchenko as a parliamentary candidate, reads a press release of the law group.

This article fails to list the details of the courts ruling and the arguments that formed the basis of their decision. It assumes the readers know the details of the case. This is a common complaint about Ukrainian Journalism.
