MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow election commission will stop accepting applications from mayoral election candidates by 18:00, Moscow time, on Wednesday. "The list is to be closed by 18:00," an election commission official said.

There are 40 persons on the list at present; 12 are nominees of various parties, and the others are self-nominees.

The applicants should submit a complete package of documents including 110 signatures of municipal deputies not later than 18:00, Moscow time, on Thursday, July 11.

Complete packages have been submitted by Ivan Melnikov from the Communist Party, Nikolai Levichev from A Just Russia and acting Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin as self-nominee.

On Tuesday, Sobyanin stated that at least six candidates would run for Moscow mayor. According to his information, just six hopefuls had been able to pass through the so-called "municipal filter," i.e. by collecting the necessary 110 signatures.

Sergei Mitrokhin representing the Yabloko Party, Mikhail Degtyaryov from the Liberal Democratic Party and Alexei Navalny from RPR-PARNAS are expected to submit complete packages of documents later on Wednesday or on Thursday.

At the previous mayoral election in Moscow in 2003, there were 15 applicants, and the voting papers eventually bore the names of four contenders.
