MOSCOW, January 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov who seeks to take part in the presidential race will be registered as candidate for president on January 25, the press service of the Russian Central Election Commission told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The agenda of tomorrow’s session of the Central Election Commission does not include issues of refusal to register two more bidders, Irkutsk region governor Dmitry Mezentsev and co-founder of the Yabloko opposition party Grigory Yavlinsky.
Prokhorov managed to collect more than two million signatures needed for him to be registered as candidate for Russian president. A check conducted by the Central Election Commission revealed that only 4.38 percent of these signatures are invalid. The figure is under the admissible five percent of invalid signatures, and, according to secretary of the Central Election Commission Nikolai Konkin, there are all the grounds to register Prokhorov as candidate for presidency.
