    The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has postponed hearing presidential candidate Victor Gerashchenko's complaint against the Central Election Commission until February 6, 2004.

    The court bound the Central Election Commission to the date indicated to grant a resolution for the special opinion of member Helen Dubrovina, who did not object to Mr. Gerashchenko's application without voters' signatures.

    Furthermore, the court ordered the Central Election Commission to produce the documents in which Mr. Gerashchenko was notified at the appropriate time that is was necessary for him to collect signatures of voters.

    On January 22, 2004, the Central Election Commission refused to register Victor Gerashchenko, a Russia's Regions party candidate, and required him to gather 2 million signatures because he was nominated by one of the entering parties and not Rodina (Rodina has joined the parliament and for this reason its candidate would not need to collect signatures).
