The relevant resolutions were published on the commission's webpage on the website of the Kyiv city council, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Palchevskyi, who is representing the Palchevskyi Victory party, was the first to be registered as a candidate for mayor of Kyiv on September 18.

Klitschko, who is representing the Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms (UDAR) party, Vereschuk, who was nominated by the Servant of the People party, and Pozhyvanov, who was nominated by the Oleh Liashko Radical Party, were registered as mayoral candidates on September 21.

The Kyiv City Election Commission refused to register Borys Sakhno as an independent mayoral candidate for failing to provide confirmation of payment of the election deposit.

Nomination of candidates for local councilors and heads of villages, towns, and cities is taking place from September 15 to 24, inclusive.
