MOSCOW, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said it might be possible to enlist representatives of the Yabloko Party as observers at the upcoming presidential elections.
"Grigory Alexeyevich Yavlinsky has a good team; and they should be recruited for work," Putin said, underlining that "he would hand in observer certificates to them with pleasure, if they agree to this work."
Putin who is running for president met with young lawyers who are planning to monitor the upcoming presidential election on Wednesday.
Earlier Grigory Yavlinsky, who intended to participate in the presidential election, was denied registration by the Central Election Commission due to a considerable amount of unauthentic signatures collected in his support.
