Yulia Tymoshenko does not intend to delay the review of her election appeal, she said, according to the official website.

"Our team does not intend to drag out something that will delay a decision," Yulia Tymoshenko said today in court.

"For us it’s important that the circumstances be examined thoroughly," she added.

Tymoshenko is also asking the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine to invite as witnesses four members of the Central Election Commission who expressed a dissenting opinion in the CEC’s protocol on the election results.

"We’re submitting a petition to involve 13 witnesses who are very important for this case, as well as four members of the CEC who issued dissenting opinions," Yulia Tymoshenko’s representative Andriy Portnov said today in court.

The plaintiff also filed a petition to obtain as written evidence the original CEC protocol from February 14 on the results of round two of voting in the presidential election.

"If everything is determined and studied thoroughly and objectively, I will accept this ruling that will be the will of the people," she said.

Tymoshenko also denied accusations made against her by some political parties that she was deliberately delaying time before the inauguration of a new president.

Today the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine began its review of Yulia Tymoshenko’s complaint against the Central Election Commission.

The case is being heard by a panel of 50 judges. The presiding judge is Oleksandr Nechytailo. Five judges are absent for legitimate reasons.
