Supreme Court Upholds Decision Of CEC To Deny CPU Leader Symonenko Registration As Presidential Candidate

The Supreme Court of Ukraine has upheld the decision of the Central Election Commission (CEC) to deny Communist Party of Ukraine Leader Petro Symonenko registration as a presidential candidate for the elections of March 31, 2019.

The press service of the Supreme Court announced this in a statement posted on its Facebook page, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The Supreme Court has upheld the ruling of the first instance supporting the decision of the Central Election Commission.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on February 6, 2019, the Sixth Administrative Court of Appeal refused to order the Central Election Commission to register the leader of the Communist Party of Ukraine, Petro Symonenko, as a presidential candidate.

The Central Election Commission refused to register Symonenko as a presidential candidate on February 2 because he was nominated by the Communist Party of Ukraine, the charter, name, and symbols of which fail to meet the requirements of the law “On Condemning the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) Totalitarian Regimes in Ukraine and Banning the Promotion of their Symbols."

The Ministry of Justice banned the Communist Party of Ukraine from participating in elections at all levels in 2015 in accordance with the provisions of the Law on De-Communization.
