YABLOKO to apply to the Constitutional Court

Press Release

March 26, 2010

At its todays meeting the Bureau of the YABLOKO party adopted a decision to challenge in the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation the provisions of the federal law on elections binding non-parliamentary parties to gather signatures so that to get registration in election campaigns. YABLOKOs leader Sergei Mitrokhin had already mentioned the partys intention to do this. The main thing that we shall challenge is demonstrative inequality of parties participating in the elections. This barbarian inequality does not allow to recognise Russia as a civilised country, Mitrokhin said.

The Bureau also drew the results of March municipal and local elections in Russia. The decision of the Bureau marked that the results of the recent elections showed growth of support to YABLOKO. Thus, elections to the Tula municipal parliament demonstrated that the share of YABLOKOs votes grew from 3.25 per cent to 11.22 per cent in less than six months. Four YABLOKOs activists were elected to the Tula City Duma. YABLOKOs candidates also passed to the deputies assembly of the Nevelsky area of the Pskov Region and City Duma of Solnechny settlement, the Tver Region.

YABLOKOs Bureau also adopted a decision that participation in regional and local elections in 2010-2011 should be regarded as priority for YABLOKOs regional branches. Preparation to the election campaign, fund raising and negotiations with partners should begin in the short term, marks the document.
