KIEV (Reuters) - The Ukrainian parliament voted on Thursday to withdraw a law on the creation of an anti-corruption court, a necessary step for the submission of a new law that is more in line with demands from backers, including the International Monetary Fund.

The bill was backed by 235 lawmakers, slightly more than the 226 required to pass.
