Would-be Mayors

MOSCOW -- Mayor Yury Luzhkov, former Prime Minister Sergei Kiriyenko and Kremlin property manager Pavel Borodin were all registered Thursday as candidates for mayor of Moscow.

Kiriyenko, however, was only registered after what Itar-Tass characterized as "a lively discussion." Elections officials said Kiriyenko reported his place of residence as the Moscow region, but lacked official documentation - he had no stamp in his passport, and Moscow region police reported he was unregistered. Elections officials were also displeased to find that Kiriyenko was not listed on military registers, and hasn't voted in two years.
