MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Supreme Court on Wednesday will consider a complaint of Grigory Yavlinsky who challenged a decision of the RF Central Election Commission (CEC) denying him registration as a presidential election candidate, the court’s press service told Itar-Tass.
According to representative of the Yabloko party Sergei Mitrokhin, the lawsuit contains two “simple demands”: to annul the CEC decision of January 27 on the registration denial and compel the CEC to register Yavlinsky as a presidential candidate.
The CEC said for its part that if the Supreme Court annuls its decision on denial Yavlinsky registration as a presidential candidate, then the ballot papers will be printed anew.
The reason for the CEC decision was 26 percent of signatures collected in Yavlinsky’s support that were recognised invalid by the CEC. Xerox copies of the signature lists were also recognised invalid by the CEC.
Yabloko members disagree with this. “We believe that the law does not require handwritten signature lists,” Mitrokhin stressed.
