In the presidential administration found two reasons not to let Roizman on elections of the Governor of Sverdlovsk region
Mayor of Yekaterinburg Yevgeny Roizman will not be registered as a candidate for the post of Governor of the Sverdlovsk region because of fears that he might win the elections the incumbent head of the region Evgeny Kuyvasheva, reports channel “Rain” with reference to close to the Kremlin sources.
According to sources, the CEC there are two reasons to refuse Roizman registration. First, he does not have time to pass the municipal filter to collect a sufficient number of signatures of municipal deputies in his support. In June, the government asked the deputies to put signatures for already registered members to not be able to sign up for Roizman.
Secondly, the mayor of Yekaterinburg had to nominate Sverdlovsk branch of party “the Apple”, but suddenly abandoned the idea, accusing the Federal colleagues of meddling. In the end, Roizman was nominated on July 21 the Federal Bureau of the party, which previously suspended the activities of the governing bodies of the Sverdlovsk branch.
The head of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova immediately called it a violation. It is called “Yabloko” urgent appeal to the CEC, “we are now worked out in detail all the nuances registration, help, there is still time until 21 July to fix it”.
A member of the CEC Nikolai Levichev stressed that “the status of the mayor Roizman does not relieve you from having to go through all statutory procedures when registering as a candidate.”
Roizman himself is hoping for a check because “it’s Russia, everything is possible.” “But the situation is complicated, I was frankly not allowed to vote,” he added, noting that this is done by local authorities and the presidential administration.
Roizman associates the problem with the fact that he won the elections in the case of registration, which the authorities wanted to avoid.
In the presidential administration confirmed that the administration of Governor Eugene Kuyvasheva was afraid that Roizman can successfully contest the election and to a significant percentage, so that local authorities are not going to help him collect signatures.
In April, the sources of Kommersant reported that Roizman elections, tried to dissuade the Plenipotentiary representative of RF President in the Urals Federal district Igor Kholmanskikh.
Roizman announced his intention to nominate his candidacy for the Governor’s office on April 17. Earlier in the day Putin signed a decree on the resignation of Sverdlovsk region Yevgeny Kuyvashev from his post as head of the region and appointed him as acting Governor until elections, to be held in a single voting day on September 10.
