CEC refuses to register Klyuyev as parliamentary candidate

The Central Election Commission (CEC) has refused to register former MP from the Party of Regions and former head of the ex-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s administration, Andriy Klyuyev, as a candidate in Ukraine’s snap parliamentary elections scheduled for July 21.

The relevant decision was approved at a CEC meeting chaired by its head Tetiana Slipachuk, the CEC Secretariat’s Media Relations Department reported.

"A. Klyuyev was denied registration as a candidate  for a people's deputy of Ukraine, nominated by the Liberal Party of Ukraine in regional election district No.46," the CEC said in a statement.

Andriy Klyuyev is suspected of seizing state property in the period from May 2010 to April 2011 by misusing his official position in cooperation with a group of persons, repeatedly and on a large scale.

According to the Security Service of Ukraine, he’s been living in the Moscow region since 2014.
