Tymoshenko: Courts won’t help contest the results of unfair elections

It won’t be possible to contest the results of the upcoming local elections in courts, believes Yulia Tymoshenko.

“Appealing to the courts is the same as appealing to the Presidential Administration, which doesn’t react at all to laws or the Constitution,” Yulia Tymoshenko said at a press conference in Zhytomyr, Tymoshenko’s official website reported.

She underscored that following the judicial reforms introduced by Yanukovych’s government, the courts are fully controlled by the government. “These are no courts in our country, and we have to come to terms with this reality until we change it.”

She also said that people should let the government know if they don’t agree with its policies. “Mass rallies happen when people are ready and willing to fight for themselves. We won’t have to call a Maidan, the people will gather on their own, the way that small business owners have throughout the country.”
