The High Administrative Court of Ukraine has accepted for consideration and opened proceedings on a lawsuit lodged by Deputy Head of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine Volodymyr Marchenko against Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, the party's press office has reported, according to UKRINFORM.

The progressive socialists, whose rating in the upcoming parliamentary elections in October 2012 is estimated by sociologists at 0.3%, are demanding that the actions of Yanukovych, who signed the Ukrainian law on the election of people's deputies of Ukraine on December 8, 2011, be declared unlawful. The plaintiff demanded that the president veto this law, because it, in the party's opinion, "violates the rights of Ukrainian citizens and prevents their free will in the elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, which are scheduled for October 28, 2012."

As reported, the law on parliamentary elections, which was adopted by parliament on November 17, 2011, envisages the introduction of the 5% election threshold and bans the participation of blocs of political parties in parliamentary elections, which displeases the so-called "small" parties.
