MOSCOW, January 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Central Election Commission finished accepting signatures from presidential candidates on Wednesday, January 18.
Businessman Mikhail Prokhorov, Irkutsk regional Governor Dmitry Mezentsev and Yabloko-nominated Grigory Yavlinsky submitted 2 million signatures.
Self-nominated candidate Sevtlana Peunova of the Samara-based unregistered Volya (Will) party submitted 243,000 signatures and said “it is impossible to collect more in 20 days”.
The Central Election Commission said she would not be registered for lack of signatures.
Earlier, self-nominated candidates Viktor Cherepkov, an ex-mayor of Vladivostok, and Rinat Khamiyev, a public figure in Orenburg, dropped out of the race after saying they would not submit signatures.
The Central Election Commission has 10 days to check and verify the submitted signatures.
