The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has recognized unconstitutional the paragraph 2 of article 22 of the law "On elections of people's deputies", which provides for attaching polling stations outside Ukraine to all single-mandate constituencies that are created in Kyiv. The decision was made on April 4 and published today, April 5, ForUm correspondent reports.

The decision was based on the provision on even attribution to all single-mandate constituencies. Ukrainians abroad do not represent Kyiv community, hence cannot be attributed to Kyiv single-mandate constituencies. According to the Court, such norm does not provide equal conditions for candidates.

Thus, foreign constituencies will not be attributed to any single-mandate constituencies at the upcoming parliamentary elections, but Ukrainians voting at polling stations abroad will be able to vote only for the candidates on party lists.

The decision of the Constitutional Court is final and cannot be appealed.

According to the Central Election Commission, there are about 400,000 voters at foreign polling stations.
