MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) —— As many as 27 political parties may be allowed to take part in elections in Russia, Nina Kulyasova, a member of the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC), said on Tuesday, referring to the Russian justice ministry’s data.
“This much of party structures have fully fulfilled the requirements of the law, that is they have set up and registered their regional branches in more than a half of Russian constituent regions,” she said. “The list of the earlier registered parties has been supplemented by the political party of Social Protection and the Smart Russia party.”
According to the Russian ministry of justice, six more political parties have fulfilled the requirements of the first stage of registration. These six are the Russian Network Party, the Russian Nationwide Union, Civil Force, the Russian Party of Pensioners for Justice, the Homeland Country political party, the Russian Conservative Party For Our Motherland. “These parties however have not yet submitted to the ministry of justice their documents certifying state registration of regional branches in at least half of Russian regions, which means they cannot take part in elections,” Kulyasova noted.
Moreover, according to Kulyasova, 184 more action groups have submitted written leters of intent to set up political parties.
