“I absolutely do not want to and will not comment on any political
decisions, be it those made in Ukraine or those made outside our
country, which cannot have any effect on the electoral process in our
country by definition,” Okhendovsky said on Channel 5 on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Tymoshenko cannot be registered as a candidate in the upcoming
parliamentary elections, as the deadline for registering candidates has
already expired, he said.
“The CEC has absolutely no reasons to register any individual as a
parliamentary candidate today, no matter what this individual’s name is.
Therefore, I can guarantee 100% that there will be no new candidate in
these elections. This would have been absolutely unlawful and arbitrary
on the CEC’s part,” Okhendovsky said.
