KIEV, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Central Election Commission on Tuesday registered four more candidates for Ukrainian president.
The four new candidates are Oleh Tyahnibok, the leader of the Svoboda (Freedom) party, Anatoly Gritsenko, a member of the national parliament, Natalia Korolevskaya, the former minister of social policy, and Olga Bogomolets, a public figure.
Thus, the overall number of officially registered presidential candidates has gone up from 14 to 18.
At its Tuesday meeting, the Central Election Commission also scrutinized registration documents filed by the leader of the radical organization Right Sector, Dmitro Yarosh. Some of the commission members voiced doubts the sum of 2.5 million hryvnias (about $227,000) needed for participation in the polls had been deposited by Yarosh personally. Thus, according to Zhanna Usenko-Chernaya, a member of the Central Election Commission, Yarosh and his family members had declared no incomes in their tax returns for 2013. The commission decided to put off the consideration of Yarosh’s documents to a later date to have time to clarify the situation.
The Central Election Commission will stops registration of candidates for Ukrainian president by April 4.
