The Central Election Commission has completed a first stage of the election campaign - the verification of lists of political parties
The Central Election Commission (CEC) has completed a first stage of the election campaign - the verification of lists of political parties. Now it gets down to the registration of the parties, CEC Chief Vladimir Churov told journalists on Monday. Fourteen political parties have had their lists verified. All in all, we have 5, 791 candidates, Churov said. Four parties, including the Just Russia Party (556 candidates), the Democratic Party of Russia (578) the Communist Party (515) and an absolute leader - the United Russia party (600) that nominated a maximum number of candidates for Duma mandates permitted by the law, have submitted the longest lists of candidates. Three more parties - the Agrarian Party of Russia, the People's Union and the Patriots of Russia have nominated 400 candidates each. LDPR, the Party of Peace and Unity, Yabloko and SPS number more than 300 candidates each. Over 200 candidates from each of the three parties - the Green, the Civil Force and the Party of Social Justice, are contesting Duma seats. The Liberal Democratic party has already submitted documents for the registration, Churov said. The list of LDPR candidates would be registered no later than October 15. The law stipulates that all the contesting parties and blocs should be registered within ten days’ time since they submit the necessary documents. CEC has already drawn a schedule of registration deadlines for each of the blocs differently colored on the schedule. A final decision on registration or denial of the registration should be announced by CEC no later than October 28, which is the deadline, Churov said. The majority of the contesting parties should collect 200,000 signatures in their support or pay a collateral worth 60 million roubles. Three parties - the United Russia, the Communist Party and the Liberal Democratic party will have been registered with no signatures or a collateral asked. The Just Russia party created after the 2003 Duma election has no such advantage. Three parties have already paid a collateral, and five parties have voiced their intention to collect signatures, Churov said. He did not elaborate.
