France: ECHR hearing could be 'game-changer' for Russian politics — Alexei Navalny

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny described his hearing in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, on Wednesday, as a potential «game-changer» for Russian politics. The lawyer and activist is there to appeal the Russian Central Elections Commission’s decision to deny his registration as a candidate in the upcoming March 2018 presidential election. «If the political court... Еще will recognise political motivation in this case, it would be a huge issue for everyone in Russia,» Navalny said. He added: «If European Court recognises political motivation, we can use it as a precedent for other processes like this.» The final decision will be made at a later date.
