MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov said court would dot the i's and cross the t's in the dispute over the registration of PARNAS (People’s Freedom Party).
“The next court hearing is to take place on March 20 and I think that the i’s will be dotted either on the same day or shortly after it and we hope that everything will fall into place,” Konovalov said on Monday, March 19.
Consultations have been held lately on how to create the most favourable conditions for the consideration of repeat requests for registration of parties after they have remedied violations exposed during initial checks.
“These consultations have so far not produced any result,” Konovalov said.
He recalled that new legislation now being drafted will make registration of parties easier and minimise requirements.
“We take the situation calmly despite criticism,” Konovalov said. “We are confident that our position is correct and lawful,” he added.
