Ukraine's Supreme Administrative Court has banned holding early parliamentary elections May 27 amid the ongoing political turmoil in the former Soviet country
Ukraine's Supreme Administrative Court has banned holding early parliamentary elections May 27 amid the ongoing political turmoil in the former Soviet country, the justice minister said Wednesday. Early elections came into the spotlight after President Viktor Yushchenko signed a decree to dissolve parliament and set snap elections for May 27, following the defection of 11 opposition members to the ruling coalition in parliament, the Supreme Rada. "There can be no elections May 27," Oleksandr Lavrynovych said, adding that the court ruling could not be appealed. While the Constitutional Court of Ukraine continues to review the presidential decree, members of the ruling coalition, the opposition, the Cabinet and the president's secretariat have gathered for political consultations on early parliamentary elections. The ruling coalition led by Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych has vehemently opposed fresh elections and refused to obey the presidential decree until the Constitutional Court announces its ruling expected by April 27.
