Central Elections Committee registers the Communist Party of Ukraine for the elections
Translated by: Mariya Shcherbinina

The CEC registered the Communist party to participate in the early parliamentary elections. The CEC approved the according decision at a session on Monday.

The electoral CPU list is headed by its leader Petro Symonenko. He is joined by member of the Parliament Adam Martyniuk, pensioner Kateryna Samoylyk, fellow at the Koretsky Institute of State and Law Vasyl Sirenko and Parliament member Petro Tsybenko.

Overall the CPU list includes 205 candidates.

In July the Ministry of Justice began the process of liquidating the CPU, having filed a petition to the court to ban the Communist Party. The evidence of the communists’ illegal activities includes 129 sheets of paper, as well as video and audio material.

The plaint includes proof of the CPU’s involvement in the actions that led to Russia’s annex of Crimea, supplying weapons and financing separatists in the eastern regions and separatists referendums in Donbas.

The early elections to the Verkhovna Rada are set for October 26.
