MOSCOW, December 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Gennady Zyuganov, leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, on Monday submitted his documents to the Central Election Commission to be registered as a presidential candidate.
It is rather a big package of documents, including his personal application with his consent to run for the election, biographic information, data about his incomes and property for 2007-10 and so on.
The commission must within five days check the documents and in case of its positive decision to register the candidate's representatives and permit to open an election account. Then, the contender for the country's main post will have the right to begin the official registration procedure.
Zyuganov was nominated as a presidential candidate at the CPRF congress on December 17. He already participated in presidential elections for four times.
