Lyubov Sobol was denied registration to the deputies of the Moscow City Duma , a representative of the district election commission said at a meeting on Tuesday.
Earlier, the Moscow Election Committee reported that 25 district election commissions had already completed consideration of all the documents submitted by candidates, 216 candidates were registered, 27 were refused. On Monday, a member of the Moscow City Election Committee Dmitry Reut told RIA Novosti that opposition member Ilya Yashin was denied registration to the Moscow City Duma due to a marriage in the subscription lists and illegal use of official position.
“The district election commission for the election of deputies of the Moscow City Duma of the 7th convocation in the single-mandate electoral district 43 decided: to deny registration of a candidate for the deputies of the Moscow City Duma of the 7th convocation Sobol Lyubov Eduardovna …”, said the representative of the commission.
It is noted that the reason for the refusal of registration was the excess of the permissible number of marriages in the signatures of voters – more than 10%. It is clarified that during the audit, 712 invalid signatures were found (14.4%) in the candidate’s subscription lists.
In turn, Lyubov Sobol demanded to postpone the meeting for two days in order to get acquainted with the revealed violations.
“Give me two days, according to the law, to submit objections to these documents,” said Sobol.
Earlier, the head of the CEC of Russia, Ella Pamfilova , said she was ready to meet with independent candidates for deputies of the Moscow City Council after July 22. Pamfilova received an appeal from Moscow’s municipal deputies to respond to the registration process of independent candidates for the Moscow City Duma elections. Later, the CEC Deputy Chairman  Nikolay Bulaev pointed out that the CEC does not have the authority to correct violations in the subscription lists of candidates for the Moscow City Duma, they can only be challenged in court. Admit that the violation does not affect the course of the election campaign, only the court can, he said.

According to him, before the appeals, only representatives of three parties that did not collect signatures will be on the electoral list: this is the Communist Party, Fair Russia and the  Liberal Democratic Party .
Later, the Moscow Election Commission announced that it had revealed a marriage above the allowable in the signatures collected by the Sable, which is grounds for refusing to register it.
