Putin Opposer Navalny Calls Election Boycott Rallies

1

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny announced on Wednesday a series of rallies across Russia in January to press home his call for a boycott of next year’s presidential election, a move likely to draw a sharp response from the Kremlin and police.

The commission ruled on Monday that Navalny was not eligible to run against Putin due to a suspended prison sentence.

“We refuse to call the reappointment of Putin an election,” Navalny said in a statement on his website. “We are not going to vote and will convince everyone around us not to vote. We are going to campaign (for a boycott) with all our might.”
