The politician said that the elections should consist of three stages: admission of parties and candidates with equal campaigning opportunities and fair counting of votes. Yet, in his opinion, the government promises only the third stage, which in itself is questionable.

To fulfill the first two conditions Navalny demands to register his “Party of progress”, which has the greatest level of support among the democratic parties, even to mention it in the official media simply forbidden”.

Read the argument between the leaders of the Parnas.

The politician also seeks admission to the election itself, which is now impossible because of a conviction in the case of Kirovec”. He reminds that the Constitution is no such prohibition, and proposes to consider it as written in the basic law, the document of direct action. In the same situation as he is, reminds Navalny, Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

Navalny says “formal and political requirements”: Prime Minister Medvedev to cancel the decision of the Ministry of justice on the elimination of the “Party of progress”, and the CEC must agree to allow him and other candidates with a criminal record to the election.
