So far this week two parties have withdrawn candidates for the upcoming elections in the city of Khimki, just outside of Moscow. The first candidate to withdraw was Yuti Babak from the "Russian Cities" party on Monday. On Tuesday Alexander Romanovich from "Fair Russia" also withdrew his candidacy, reports Interfax.
"On October 8, 2012, the Central Election Commission of Khimki received a statement from candidate Yuri Babak asking to cancel his registration," Babak's press service told Interfax on Tuesday.
"As part of the election campaign, experts in the 'Cities of Russia' party have carefully studied all the election platforms of the candidates, and have evaluated the personal capabilities of each applicant. In our opinion, the most worthy candidate today, who can take responsibility for the management of the city on your behalf and on on behalf of the citizens is Oleg Shakhov," a press service statement said.
Alexander Romanovich from "Fair Russia" has made no such announcement as to why he has withdrawn his candidacy yet. The chairman of Mosoblizbirkoma Irek Vildanov said "Alexander Romanovich from 'Fair Russia' wrote a letter to the local election commission in Khimki that removes his candidacy." No further details are known at the moment.
There are still several other candidates for Mayor of Khimki: the leader of the movement "the Defense of Khimki Forest" Evgeny Chirikov
