MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) — The Central Election Commission /CEC/ decided to hand over Gennady Gudkov's mandate to Alexander Tarnavsky, member of the Central Council of A Just Russia Party.
The vacancy in the Party's faction at the State Duma appeared after the parliament voted on September 14 to strip Gudkov of his mandate for illegal entrepreneurship, on the strength of the materials presented by the Investigation Committee and the Prosecutor General's Office. The parliament moved to oust Gudkov as running a business is incompatible with the lawmaker's status.
At the previous parliamentary election, Tarnavsky was third on the regional list of A Just Russia led by Gudkov.
Tarnavsky's candidacy was suggested by the presidium of the Central Council of A Just Russia in a statement to the CEC on September 27.
