    MOSCOW, February 6, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Supreme Court has backed the decision of the Central Election Commission not to register the presidential candidacy of Viktor Gerashchenko.

    According to a RIA Novosti correspondent, the court announced its ruling on Friday after considering the claim of the former chief of the Russian Central Bank.

    On January 22, 2004 the Central Election Commission refused to register the candidacy of Viktor Gerashchenko forwarded by the Russian Regions party because he was not a candidate from the Motherland bloc but from one of its parties. Therefore, the Central Election Commission said, Gerashchenko should have collected two million signatures of voters in his support, which he failed to do.
