While socialite and part-time candidate Ksenia Sobchak tries to prove that he has not led the party on the island of Bali and is fighting with the head of the headquarters of Alexei Navalny, she struck a new blow. Yuri Sidorov, who until recently worked in her campaign headquarters in Chuvashia, says that he has information about violation by the staff of the headquarters of the electoral law. However, upon closer examination it turned out that the story is more like an episode of the TV show “Dom-2”, rather than real political showdown.
“I ask you to recognize all of the signatures collected in the Chuvash Republic invalid, so as to establish the will of the voters is impossible,” Sidorov said in an open letter to the TV presenter.
According to him, the collection of signatures in Chuvash Republic, allegedly carried out by the head of the Chuvash Republic Mikhail Ignatiev. Namely, due to the order “from above” – residents of the Republic signing it under duress.
“Given the fact that you are not a “Kremlin project”, please, Ksenia, not to surrender to the Central Election Commission the signatures collected in support of Your nomination in the Chuvash Republic.
However, he refers to part 7 of article 36 of the Federal law of 10.01.2003 # 19-FZ “About presidential elections of the Russian Federation” according to which local governments are forbidden to take part in campaigning and collecting signatures in support of any candidate.
“Yuri Sidorov left our headquarters seventh of January. We had a fight on personal grounds — he was my young man,” – commented the head of the Chuvash staff Sobchak Daria Komarova.
The girl claims that they had a fight and Sidorov “his personal attitude has translated into the working moments”, then left the headquarters in the midst of collecting signatures.
The culprit of the scandal in an interview with “MK” this information is partially confirmed.
Darya was my woman! I’m a little drunk, but you don’t think I’m an alcoholic…
– How did you know about the administrative resource?
– I said this is the signature collectors. They were very upset about what is happening and approached me.
– How exactly are people “forced” to sign?
– Administration staff went to the districts together with the collector and orderly picked up people.
According to Sidorova, the situation he just wont leave and wants to appeal to the CEC.
Sobchak also commented on the incident, she asked everyone to come to the headquarters in Chuvash Republic and to verify signatures. It is unclear, however, how can we understand the duress they were raised or voluntarily.
Perhaps to calm his employees, she would do well to remember the role of a leading “telestroke” and try as soon as possible to reunite quarreled lovers, to avoid further clashes.
