Tymoshenko appeal of election results to begin February 19

2010/2/18 2:13:32
KYIV, Feb. 17, 2010 (Ukrainian News/UBO) – Ukraine’s Supreme Administrative Court on Friday, Feb. 19 will begin hearing the case brought by Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko against the Central Electora
Commission's (CEC) certification of returns of the presidential election, the court’s press service announced late Wednesday. A judicial collegium consisting of all the court’s judges not necessarily absent will begin the court sitting at 11:00 a.m. The court announcement made no mention of how long it might take to reach a conclusion regarding the prime minister’s appeal. However, the court is expected to be under immense pressure from Party of Regions partisans who are interested in keeping to the previously agreed schedule of Feb. 25 as the date for inauguration of the Viktor Yanukovych presidency at a special session of the Verkhovna Rada. Few political observers expect the court to overturn the CEC’s decision that Yanukovych won by a significant margin, but it is possible that the hearing could be drawn out long enough to make the postponement of the planned inauguration date a necessity. Also, should the Tymoshenko appeal fail, as appears likely, it is unclear whether she might try to take the case to the Constitutional Court although her previous statements would seem to assure that she would follow any appeal route possible.
