Supporters of Alexei Navalny rallied in Rostov-on-Don, on Sunday, to hold a vote for his candidacy for the presidency. A representative on the local authorities stated that Teatralnaya Square, where the rally was being held, was «not a specially designated place» and thus is not suitable for public events such as protests and demonstrations. However, the organisers of the event decided to... Еще continue collecting signatures to complete their symbolic voting process. Reportedly, the legitimacy of the voting records can be challenged, since all the requirements have not been met. The head of Russian Сentral Election Committee (CEC) stated that Navalny is not eligible to participate in the presidential election since he was conditionally sentenced for the embezzlement of «Kirovles» and has an outstanding conviction. However, the Russian CEC will consider the applications of all candidates following the necessary pre-election procedures, such as party congresses and meetings.
