MOSCOW, September 7 (RAPSI) – The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation dismissed a complaint of the Communist Party seeking to challenge a new regulation of the voting hold for three days, the Court’s press service informs RAPSI on Monday.

The claimant challenged the voting procedure for the elections to be held on September 13 approved by the Central Election Commission on July 24, according to the information, saying that after the abolishment of the self-isolation regime this procedure became unnecessary; at the same time, according to the Communist Party, it contradicts the Constitution.

Nevertheless, the Supreme Court refused to hear the case; an appellate instance said this decision was lawful.

This August, Head of the Central Election Commission Ella Pamfilova reported that 59% of the Russians approve the extended term of the voting.
