Press Release
September 8, 2010

On September 8 electoral commissions announced registration of two YABLOKO election lists for elections to the Legislative Assembly of the Chelyabinsk region and the City Duma of Tomsk. The electoral commissions checking the signatures of the voters required for registration detected a very small number of defected signatures only about 3 per cent.

YABLOKO collected over 15,000 signatures in the Chelyabinsk region. Chair of the local YABLOKO branch Andrei Talevlin noted that this had been a complicated task during summer vacation period, however, YABLOKO managed to do this.

In Tomsk YABLOKO collected over 4,000 signatures. Chair of the Tomsk YABLOKO Vassily Yeryomin said that the most difficult problem was citizens mistrust to this procedure. People are afraid to put their passport data by the signature as they suspect that some banking loans can be taken with the use of their data, Yeryomin said.

The election campaigns will last for a month, elections will take place on the same day October 10.

In the Chelyabinsk region YABLOKOs list is topped by women ecologist Natalya Mironova and human rights activist Fatima Kobzhasarova. The campaign will focus on environmental problems that are very urgent in this region and womens rights.

YABLOKOs campaign in Tomsk will lay emphasis on fight against corruption one of the most acute problems of the city.
