The leadership of the party “Communists of Russia” plans from August 14 to begin an indefinite hunger strike due to the withdrawal of their candidates from the elections to the legislative Assembly of North Ossetia. A statement published on its website on Friday, August 11.

Stavropol regional court recognised as invalid the signatures on the statements of consent to run 42 previously registered candidates, including the leader of the party of Maxim Suraykina, writes TASS.

“Members of the Politburo of the Communist party Communists of Russia consider the decision of the Stavropol court is politically motivated and has all the signs of corruption component,” — said in the message.

The Communists intend to hold a hunger strike in the Moscow office and keep it up until the Supreme court “will not accept an objective decision” on the case concerning the participation of “Communists of Russia” in the elections in the North Ossetian Parliament. The leadership of the Communist party also sent in 77 regional offices urging them to join this action.

June 29, former Governor of Kirov region Nikita Belykh accused of receiving a bribe in especially large size, has notified the management of the SIZO “Lefortovo” that begins the hunger strike.
