Putin complains of non-admission to elections of candidates from the Communist party in the regions

Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov announced that he would appeal to President Vladimir Putin in connection with non-admission to elections of candidates from the Communist party in some regions of the country. Such a statement he made at a press conference, reports TASS on Monday, August 21.

The head of state reminded Zyuganov, is the guarantor of the Constitution and should know that in North Ossetia, Buryatia and violated the constitutional rights of citizens “under absolutely far-fetched pretext”.

“We believe that it is in the highest degree of disgrace (…). If this wave will go to elections, they have no sense,” he said.

Earlier on Monday it became known that the Stavropol regional court has cancelled registration of the list of the Communist party in the elections to the legislative Assembly of North Ossetia. The reason for this was the invalidation of the signature of the representative of the CEC of the region under the instrument of acceptance of certificates for relatives of candidates from the Communist party.

In late July, the election Commission of the Republic of Buryatia refused to register the candidate for the presidency of the Republic from the Communist party Senator Vyacheslav Marhaeva, as it could not overcome the municipal filter.

In the single voting day, September 10, across the country will host more than 5.8 thousand elections and referendums at different levels. They will not only be carried out in three regions: Ingushetia, Magadan oblast and Saint-Petersburg.
