GROZNY, July 25 (Itar-Tass) - Thursday was the last day for the election commission of the Chechen republic to receive documents from the parties participating in the upcoming parliamentary election in the republic.
Seventeen parties have nominated 793 candidates, which is a record figure for Chechen parliamentary elections, the chairman of the republican election commission, Ismail Baikhanov, told reporters on Thursday.
