Bulgaria's Supreme Administrative Court has canceled the Central Election Commission's (CEC) decision to not register the Blue Coalition for participation in the Parliament Elections in July 2009.

Thus the rightist coalition between the Democrats for Strong Bulgaria (DSB) and the United Democratic Forces (UDF) will be allowed to take part in the elections on July 5.

CEC refused Thursday to register the coalition for participation in the 2009 Parliamentary Elections.

The leader of the Democrats for Strong Bulgaria party and former Prime Minister, Ivan Kostov, said that there were no legal grounds on which the CEC could refuse to register the Blue Coalition

The CEC refusal to register the Blue Coalition came after a months-long court saga of the Union of Democratic Forces over the registration of the newly-elected UDF Chair, Martin Dimitrov.

The Blue Coalition is made up of five parties, the two major ones being the UDF and the DSB.
