MOSCOW, September 11. (Itar-Tass). – The staff of oppositionist mayoral candidate Alexei Navalny on September 12 will file a lawsuit to the Moscow City Court seeking to cancel the results of Moscow mayoral election.
“We are preparing 952 suits, one of which will be filed to the Moscow City Court to demand cancellation of election results at large. Another 951 suits concern cancellation of results in local election committees, and the Moscow City Court will send them to district courts,” Navalny told Itar-Tass.
As stated by head of Navalny’s election office Leonid Volkov, the staff focused on the “legal part” of the issue, and that is why they called off the application for a public rally September 14 on Bolotnaya Square. “The application for the rally has been filed in August, in other political conditions. All that we wanted to say on the meeting, we said on September 9,” he explained.
Earlier Moscow’s city hall expressed its readiness to allow the meeting of Navalny’s supporters on September 14 on Bolotnaya Square with a number of participants of up to 25 thousand people.
