No Vote for Yabloko

Kaliningrad election authorities have refused registration to all five candidates from the liberal Yabloko party looking to run for the city legislature in single-mandate districts, Regnum news agency reported Thursday.

Three of the candidates were banned from participating in the vote over allegedly fake signatures in their support, and two on technicalities also related to signature collecting, the report said.

Yabloko currently has no representatives in city or regional legislatures nationwide.
