Monday, December 25th, 2017 | bitcoin updates


Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny has mobilized thousands of people in demonstrations for his presidential candidacy. According to his team, more than 15,000 people took to the streets nationwide on Sunday to pressure the election commission. Navalny himself submitted his candidature application to the Central Electoral Commission in Moscow. "A choice without us is not a choice," he said. The 41-year-old could be the main opponent of incumbent Vladimir Putin in the presidential election in March 2018. Because of a conviction, however, he may not run. In 20 cities gathered on Sunday, each several hundred people to enforce Nawalny's approval. More than 700 people gathered in Moscow to support the candidacy. The lawyer and blogger himself also appeared at the event. Navalny threatens another boycott of the election "I am very happy and proud to announce that I stand here as a candidate for all of Russia," Nawalny called to his supporters. "We are ready to win and we will win this election." He also threatened again with a boycott of the election, should he not be admitted as a candidate. If the election was not "honest," it would have to be thwarted. The rally took place in a tent on the banks of the Moskva River. Another venue was not approved, according to Nawalny. According to his campaign, two representatives of the Central Electoral Commission took part in the event. There were further rallies from Vladivostok in the Far East of Russia to St. Petersburg in the West. According to Nawalny's campaign, more than 800 people took part in Rostov-on-Don in the south of Russia, more than 900 in Yekaterinburg in the Urals and more than 700 in Novosibirsk in Siberia.

In St. Petersburg, more than a thousand people demonstrated for Nawalny's approval. "Navalny is the only real opposition candidate," said 60-year-old Sergey Dmitriev. "We need a new president," said 18-year-old Alexander Semyonov. Navalny is considered Putin's most important opponent, and his re-election on 18 March is widely expected. Nawalny is not allowed to run for office until 2028. In October, the electoral commission decided that Nawalny should not stand for office until 2028. The Commission justified this by condemning Nawalny for embezzlement. The opposition politician denies the allegations and speaks of a political verdict. With the nationwide rallies Nawalny wanted to pressure the electoral commission and demonstrate how broad its support. He called on his supporters to apply for admission in each of the 20 cities in the Election Commission's office. At least 500 people should gather at each rally – this is the minimum number of supporters a presidential candidate must have. Putin said Saturday night at a ruling party meeting with United Russia, an opposition that was "responsible and able to act", "with respect " be treated. However, such an opposition should not only fight the government and blame its "all deadly sins" but have a "clear plan for positive action". (AFP)
