Press Release

March 12, 2010

The Supreme Court did not let YABLOKO to participate in the election campaign to the regional parliament in the Sverdlovsk Region. YABLOKO’s complaint on the decision of the Sverdlovsk Region Court (which ruled out the refusal of the regional election commission to register YABLOKO is the race was lawful) was not satisfied.

Thus, YABLOKO was not allowed to participate in the regional elections. On March 9 the Supreme Court also adopted the same decision on the complaint of the Kaluga branch of YABLOKO.

Electoral commissions both in the Sverdlovsk and Kaluga region rejected a considerable part of signatures collected in support of YABLOKO’s list and required for registration in the race as fraudulent.

YABLOKO will apply to the Constitutional Court claiming to abrogate the discriminative requirement of collection of signatures for some of Russia’s parties to get registered in election campaigns.
