Another option is the urgent changes in Federal laws that will allow you to participate in the elections with a criminal record, suggests Pamfilova.
“But since the likelihood of such a hypothetical “miracles” is negligible, I see no way to register” – shared skeptical the head of the CEC.
Pamfilova also said those who believe that “there is” nothing decided “if you bring more people on the street, under pressure from the masses of his [Navalny] will register”. She admitted that “given the diva”, hearing such arguments.
“How and who will do it?! Certainly not I,” said she, on the registration of the opposition candidate in presidents of Russia. The CEC head says: nobody will make you do it, even if the pressure will be on all sides.
From the interviews it becomes clear that the pressure she expected Navalny supporters “who used to “think” of text messages and hashtags”. Pamfilova sees the situation so that they hammer in the idea: there will be a lot of supporters — “selling”.
