MOSCOW, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The cassation penal of the Russian Supreme Court cancelled the verdict, which the first legal instance passed to oblige the Central Elections Commission (CEC) to register a group of voters in support of the self-nomination of writer Boris Mironov to run for presidency in Russia.
The Supreme Court cassation penal satisfied the CEC appeal.
Meanwhile, the cassation penal did not submit the Mironov case for a retrial. “The cassation penal of the Russian Supreme Court ruled to cancel the verdict, which the Supreme Court passed on December 26. The cassation penal also turned down Boris Mironov’s appeal against the CEC,” the judge said.
The public prosecutor from the Prosecutor General’s Office supported the CEC position that appealed the first verdict, which the Supreme Court passed.
The CEC denied the registration to a group of voters in support of the self-nomination of Boris Mironov as a presidential candidate on December 18.
Boris Mironov, who is the former first chief editor of the government-controlled Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily, is presently a writer, in several works of which the traces of extremism were found several years ago. Mironov cannot be elected as Russian president, because the court found that the latter “distributed the materials, which are seeking to instigate social, racial, interethnic and religious strife, the propaganda of inferiority of people due to their social, racial, ethnic, religious or language identity.”
However, the Supreme Court found the CEC denial unlawful on December 26.
