MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - The Justice Ministry on Friday refused to register the People’s Alliance Party of opposition blogger Alexei Navalny. The ministry told the Izvestia newspaper that after the submitted documents were checked it was found out that many founders of the party had not attended the congress although there were their signatures in them.
“Not all founders of the party took part in the congress. We began checks, contacted the people mentioned in the documents. And part of them said they had not attended the congress,” ministry sources said.
Earlier, the ministry suspended the registration of Navalny’s party after the head of the Green Alliance - People’s Party, Oleg Mitvol, had filed a lawsuit saying the Justice Ministry violated the law by helping in the registration of the People’s Alliance, the name of which had two words coinciding with those in the name of Mitvol’s party.
The documents for registering the party were submitted in August 2012. The organizing committee of the party included the executive director of Navalny’s anti-corruption foundation, Vladimir Ashurkov, Yekaterinburg city duma deputy Leonid Volkov, political scientist Fedor Krasheninnikov, the chairman of the board of the Constructive Project Foundation, blogger Vladislav Naganov, as well as reporter Timur Khorev. Navalny himself stated earlier that was not going to join the party although he considered it his party.
