I’ll contest falsified Ukraine poll: Tymoshenko
Kiev: Defeated candidate Yulia Tymoshenko on Saturday refused to recognise her rival Viktor Yanukovych as Ukraine`s new president and said she would challenge the results of the Presidential Election in court.
"The election in Ukraine was falsified," Tymoshenko said in a televised address, a week after the election that handed victory to Yanukovych by a slim margin of some 3.5 percent.
"I have taken the only decision possible, which is to contest the result of the vote in court. I will defend our state and your choice with the support of legal arguments," said Tymoshenko, who is Prime Minister.
"Yanukovych is not our president. He will never become a legitimately-elected president of Ukraine under any circumstances."
