MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) — The Yabloko Party has not abandoned its earlier stated intention to seek in court the registration of its candidate Grigory Yavlinsky for the presidential election on March 4, party leader Sergei Mitrokhin said on Thursday.
We are drafting a claim, Mitrokhin told Tass. “We consider this issue, study it with lawyers,” he added.
Earlier on Thursday, Central Election Commission (CEC) secretary Nikolai Konkin confirmed that Yabloko lawyers still have time for legal procedures. “Before February 6, Yavlinsky has the right to challenge in the Supreme Court CEC’s refusal to register him,” he told reporters.
On January 27, the CEC denied registration as a presidential candidate to one of the founders of the Yabloko Party, Grigory Yavlinsky. The denial was caused by the problems with the signup lists. The percentage of false and invalid signatures in Yavlinsky’s signup lists exceeded 25% that is five times more than the percentage permitted by the law.
