The court dismissed the Bulk of the CEC refusal to register him as a candidate
MOSCOW, 30 Jul — RIA Novosti. The Supreme court dismissed the complaint Alexei Navalny on the refusal of the CEC to register the initiative groups for nomination as a presidential candidate, the correspondent of RIA Novosti news from the courtroom.
“The Supreme court does not find grounds for satisfaction of these requirements”, — announced the decision of the judge.
Earlier, the CEC decided “to refuse to register groups of voters formed to support self-candidate for the post of the President of Russia Alexey Anatolyevich Navalny and his authorized representatives, in connection with the absence of candidate’s passive suffrage”.
According to the law “About presidential elections of the Russian Federation”, convicted to imprisonment for committing a serious crime can become head of state only after 10 years from the date of withdrawal or cancellation of conviction. The Kirov regional court has previously confirmed a five-year suspended sentence Navalny on charges of embezzlement of more than 16 million rubles of the company “Kirovles”.
