Ukrainian court suspends election result


A top Ukrainian court has suspended the result of the country’s recent presidential election after a legal challenge by the losing candidate, Yulia Tymoshenko.

On its website the ‘supreme administrative’ court said it was suspending the outcome while Tymoshenko’s complaints were being dealt with.

The pro-western candidate has refused to stand down as prime minister, claiming the result which gave victory to her pro-Russian rival Viktor Yanukovich was fraudulent.

She says vote-rigging took place at several hundred polling stations. International observers, however, say they believe the outcome was fair.

Analysts do not expect Tymoshenko’s challenge to succeed.
