MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow city election commission has registered Alexei Navalny a candidate, nominated by the opposition party RPR-PARNAS, in the coming election of the Moscow mayor due on September 8 and issued a registration certificate in the name of the candidate.
Rima Kuznetsova, Chief of a juridical department of the Moscow election commission, said that no violations were found when Alexei Navalny turned over 115 signatures of municipal deputies in his support to the election commission.
But Alexei Navalny has not received the registration certificate of the candidate because Navalny could not come to the election commission in person. Chief of the Moscow Election Commission Valentin Gorbunov refused to give the registration certificate of the candidate to the head of Alexei Navalny's election headquarters Leonid Volkov because Volkov did not have the necessary document authorizing him to represent Navalny by proxy. Volkov said he would do his best to get the document by 6.00 pm.
Alexei Navalny is the sixth candidate for the post of the Moscow mayor, who has been registered by the Moscow Election Commission. Earlier, a candidate's certificates had been issued to Ivan Melnikov from the Communist Party, Nikolai Levichev from the A Just Russia party, Mikhail Degtyaryov from LDPR, Sergei Mitrokhin from Yabloko and Acting Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
