CPRF files over 30 lawsuits demanding cancellation of election results

MOSCOW. Sept 30 (Interfax) - Moscow's Presnensky District Court has registered over 30 lawsuits from the Russian Communist Party (CPRF) demanding that the results of online voting in Moscow be canceled.

"The court has received 32 administrative lawsuits from the Russian Communist Party and candidates for the State Duma seeking cancellation of the voting results," court press secretary Lela Kokaya told Interfax.

Fifteen lawsuits were filed by the party, 15 by Communist Party candidates, and two by independent candidates, Anastasia Bryukhanova and Nadezhda Zagordan.

Communist Party candidate Mikhail Lobanov lodged the first claim for canceling the online voting results with the court earlier. A hearing has yet to be scheduled.

Deputy head of the CPRF faction in the Moscow City Duma Leonid Zyuganov said earlier that 15 candidates nominated by the party's Moscow branch were planning to demand the cancellation of the online voting results in court.

Elections of various levels were held in Russia on September 17-19. There were over 4,400 regional and municipal campaigns in all 85 constituent territories of Russia in that period.
