Candidates Added

KIEV -- Two more candidates have been registered for Ukraine's Oct. 31 presidential election, bringing the number running to 12, an official from the Central Electoral Commission said Wednesday.

"In compliance with the ruling by the Supreme Court, the CEC decided yesterday to register Mykola Haber and Olexander Rzhavsky as presidential candidates," the official said. Haber and Rzhavsky head little-known patriotic parties and are among three candidates registered after the official Aug. 1 deadline.
