Ukraine high court approves president’s early election order

World News | Published:

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s opponents were appealing the order.

Ukraine’s constitutional court has ruled in favour of the president’s order to dissolve the parliament and call snap elections.

Thursday’s ruling paves the way for elections to the Supreme Rada to be held on July 21, about four months ahead of schedule.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy issued the order on the day after his inauguration last month to dissolve the parliament.

His opponents appealed the order to the constitutional court.

The court’s decision is binding and cannot be appealed.
