6,259 candidates for deputies were registered for the municipal elections in Moscow, Dmitry Reut, deputy head of the Moscow City Electoral Committee, told RBC, summing up the registration stage. 1261 candidates from United Russia, 928— from the Communist Party, 547— from the party «New people», 503— from A Just Russia, 308— from the Liberal Democratic Party and 179— from the Yabloko party.

According to Reut, 599 people withdrew their candidacies or did not bring documents, another 465 were refused. “Reason for refusal — mainly violations in the collection of signatures»,— Reut added. Thus, “about five people” claim one mandate, which the deputy head of the Moscow City Electoral Committee described as “quite good competition.”

The percentage admitted to the elections was 85.4% of all nominated (7326 people), which is lower compared to the last municipal elections in 2017, when 92% of candidates (7665 out of 8330 candidates) were registered, but about the same (84%) as in 2012 (4151 out of 4959 candidates).

Municipal Campaign Coordinator “New People” In Moscow, Anna Trofimenko, in a conversation with RBC, noted that 33 people from the party were not registered: they all withdrew from the elections themselves, mainly due to family circumstances. “It is important for us that the candidates fully work the campaign, the one who felt that he cannot do this leaves,” — she explained.

The head of the city committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Nikolai Zubrilin, in a conversation with RBC, noted that some of the communist candidates also refused to participate in the elections for personal reasons. According to him, at the moment, out of 928 candidates who have submitted documents for nomination, 870 have been registered. The party received nine refusals, in particular, as he said earlier, due to shortcomings in the submitted documents.

Some of the candidates lost the right to run for office due to prosecution for displaying extremist symbols (Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). The court decision on this article that has entered into force entails a ban on participation in elections during the year— at least 24 candidates were not admitted. Among other grounds for refusals— “involvement in an extremist organization” (on this basis, they refused, in particular, to Konstantin Yankauskas and Sergey Tsukasov).

Self-nominated candidates faced registration denials more frequently than party representatives, but the creators of the two — teams to help candidates appreciate the intermediate results of the campaign.

88 participants of the project “Nomination” Deputy Zyuzino Alexander Zamyatin and former State Duma candidate from the Communist Party Mikhail Lobanov have already received candidate certificates, another 20 are now appealing against refusals to support the project, Zamyatin told RBC.

“This is significantly higher than our expectations in terms of the number of registered candidates from the platform, so we are very satisfied. We predicted only about 60 candidates, — he noted. Candidates were rejected due to invalidation of collected signatures or errors in filling out documents.

Candidates from Roman Yuneman's team also faced a problem with signatures. According to Yuneman, in the Basmanny district, handwriting experts found a drawing in the signature of a staff member, and in Domodedovo the commission rejected the signature of the candidate's grandmother. Of the 60 candidates initially nominated, 50 were registered (the team is now working with 40 due to disagreements)— such a number of candidates will allow for a good campaign, Yuneman said in a conversation with RBC.

In the fall, elections will be held in the capital in 125 out of 146 districts. A total of 1417 deputies will be elected. The most competitive areas, according to preliminary data, were Izmailovo, Sokolinaya Gora, Veshnyaki, Novogireevo and Bogorodskoye, political scientist Alexander Asafov said. For the municipal elections in Moscow, the rules for the formation of councils of municipal deputies were clarified— their number began to depend on the number of voters in the district, as a result of which the number of mandates decreased by 85 compared to 2017.
