Al Jazeera English - Europe - Ukraine PM to challenge poll result

Yulia Tymoshenko, Ukraine's defeated presidential candidate, has declared that she will challenge the election which saw her opponent, Viktor Yanukovych, win the presidential run-off.

Tymoshenko said on Saturday that she will fight the result of last week's vote in Ukrainian courts, calling Yanukovych's win illegitimate.

"I want to clearly state: Yanukovych is not our president. Whatever happens in future, he will never become the legitimately elected president of Ukraine," she said in a televised broadcast.

She also called on the Ukrainian people to support her legal battle to overturn the election result.

But she said she would not call on her supporters to take to the streets in protest.



Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
