KIEV, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. The Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine refused the opposition leaders’ demand for opening proceedings to qualify the January 16 voting in the Supreme Rada (parliament) unlawful, the court’s press service reported.
The court said the claimant’s demands should be clearer and better substantiated. Thus, the court refused to open proceedings for an administrative case against the Supreme Rada of Ukraine. The court gave the claimant time till February 5, 2014 to remedy the drawbacks in presenting the demands.
Leaders of the opposition factions Arseny Yatsenyuk, Oleg Tyagnibok and Vitaly Klichko brought a suit regarding the January 16 voting in parliament. On that day deputies from the Party of Regions and the Communist Party passed a number of bills that met with a controversial response in society, including the bill on heavier penalties for participation in mass protests. Because of the standoff and the “Rada” system having been blocked by the opposition, the parliamentary majority voted by show of hands, which the opposition leaders found to contradict regulations.
