Ukrainian Opposition Bloc's Candidates Registered

Yulia Tymoshenko (file photo) (epa) August 15, 2007 -- Ukrainian election officials have reversed their decision and registered candidates from the pro-Western opposition bloc led by former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko for the September 30 parliamentary elections.

In its original ruling, the Central Election Commission had disqualified the bloc on the grounds that its candidates had not provided full addresses.

A Kyiv court on August 14 ruled that the commission should review its decision.
