MOSCOW, February 20 (Itar-Tass) — Rallies, even if they are held on the election day, are not regulated by the election legislation, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) Leonid Ivlev said on Monday, commenting on reports that a number of non-governmental organisations have submitted applications for staging rallies on March 4-5. “It is regulated by another law,” he said.
“If they fulfil the requirements of the law on rallies and processions and submit applications within the established time period, the local self-government bodies will make a decision on whether to allow them a rally or not,” Ivlev added.
