Ukraine's Central Election Commission has registered the party ticket of the united opposition Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party without its leader, Yulia Tymoshenko, and ex-Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko.
Justice Minister Oleksandr Lavrynovych said on August 8 that people serving prison terms are ineligible to run for parliament.
Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years in prison for exceeding her powers when signing natural-gas contracts with Russia in 2009.
Lutsenko was found guilty of malfeasance and was sentenced to four years in prison.
