MOSCOW, February 16 (Itar-Tass) —— A co-founder of Russia’s opposition party Yabloko, Yuri Boldyrev, has been registered as an election agent of the Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, who is running for Russian president.
On Thursday the Russian Central Election Commission registered another list of Zyuganov’s agents featuring 14 names. Boldyrev is listed as a political writer.
As of now, the number of Zyuganov’s electioneering agents is 368.
This is not the first case, when representatives of right-wing political parties are listed among election agents of presidential candidates nominated by political forces of somewhat different ideological orientation. Thus, also on Thursday, former leader of the Moscow region branch of the Right Cause party Boris Nadezhdin was registered as an electioneering agent of another presidential candidate, Just Russia leader Sergei Mironov.
Under the Russian law, each candidate for presidency has the right to appoint up to 600 electioneering agents, who may take part in the canvassing campaign, including debates.
