European court asked to nullify Russian elections

From MosNews:

A suit seeking to cancel the results of the 2003 parliamentary elections in Russia has been officially submitted to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg on Thursday, the Gazeta.Ru Web newspaper reports.

The suit was brought in by the liberal-oriented Yabloko party, the Committee 2008: Free Choice opposition group and the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

The plaintiffs pointed out grave violations which led to vote rigging. The Kremlin campaigners had intentionally misinformed the voters about the activities of opposition parties effectively unleashing a smear campaign against liberals and communists, they said.
