MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - Two more self-nominated candidates for the post of Moscow mayor submitted documents to the Moscow election commission on Saturday, July 6.
The candidates are lawyer Artur Zhonozhin and pensioner Mikhail Snezhkov, 68. Now the number of candidates has increased to 38.
Prior to that, Olesya Vishnya, 40, of Moscow who is not currently working, and Alexei Nazarov, 46, head of the K committee against genocide of the Russian people, submitted documents.
The newcomers have one week to collect more than 73,000 signatures in their support from Muscovites and 110 signatures from municipal deputies in order to be registered as candidates. July 10 is the last day when the election commission accepts the documents.
On July 3, Ivan Melnikov of the Communist Party became the first to have submitted the full package of documents to the election commission.
Early mayoral election will be held in Moscow on September 8 and will be the first one in ten years.
In early June, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on early termination of Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin’s tour of duty.
Sobyanin had earlier tendered resignation, asking the president to accept it.
Putin accepted his resignation and instructed him to remain as acting mayor of Moscow until the mayoral election, the date of which will be set by the Moscow City Duma.
