CCU failed to elect a new head instead of Tupitsky - no worthy candidate was found

In the election of a new head of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on June 14, none of the candidates received the necessary the number of votes. Repeat elections will be held no later than July 15. This was announced by the representative of the Verkhovna Rada in the Constitutional Court Olga Sovgirya.

– According to the Constitution, the law and the regulations of the Constitutional Court, the elections of the head of the Constitutional Court are held by secret ballot by judges, and a candidate is considered elected for whom at least 10 judges vote. If none of the candidates for the position of the head of the Court has received the required number of votes, new elections are held no later than a month from the date of the previous election of the head of the Court, the parliamentarian wrote.

To elect the head of the Constitutional Court, 10 votes of judges are needed out of 14 currently active. Sovgirya also stressed that neither the Constitution of Ukraine nor the law “On the Constitutional Court” contains any restrictions on the election of the head of the Constitutional Court during martial law. The Constitutional Court has not officially released information about applicants for this position.

Alexander Tupitsky was removed from the post of head of the Constitutional Court in December 2020. After the outbreak of the war, he illegally went abroad. On May 27, the former head of the Constitutional Court was put on the international wanted list.
