MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - The headquarters of defeated candidate for mayor's office Alexey Navalny has filed lawsuits to the Moscow city court on Thursday, demanding to invalidate the results of the election of the Moscow mayor.
"We prepared 952 lawsuits, including the one directly lodged with the Moscow City Court in which we demand to invalidate the results of the election. In the remainder of the complaints (951), which the Moscow city court is to turn over to district courts, Navalny's headquarters asked to repeal the results of the election at district election commissions,"Navalny said earlier. The 951 complaints challenge the results of the voting submitted by district election commissions which reported a suspiciously high turnout at the polls and a too high level of voting at home.
The lawsuit demanding invalidation of the results of the election challenges two main violations during the election - free food packages totally worth around two billion roubles which were given to pensioners at the expense of the city budget, and publications in the municipal newspapers which exclusively highlighted stories about Acting Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin, Navalny said.
"We believe the election should be invalidated because of the abuse of the administrative resource," Navalny said.
