Rome, March 12, 2010

Regional Elections in Russia

The European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party, convening in Rome, Italy on 12th March 2010:

- The ELDR Party resolution “Russian Elections” adopted in November 20092;
- That regional elections are taking place this Sunday (14th March 2010) and ELDR’s member party, Yabloko is not being allowed to run in the regions of Sverdlovsk and Kaluga;
- That despite President Medvedev’s statements on access to participating in elections, the Yabloko Party continues to be discriminated against.

Calls on the Russian authorities to:
- Take urgent remedial measures in ensuring free and fair elections and maximum public control over voting;
- Observe Russia’s obligations to ensure democratic standards under its membership of the OSCE and the Council of Europe.

- Raise this issue with the ALDE Groups in the Council of Europe and the European Parliament.
