Russia's Central election committee called the elections of Opposition Coordination Council "a hit-parade" and said that it would not comment on it.
"We do not comment on hit parades," the deputy head of CEC Leonid Ivlev said to the Interfax news agency on Tuesday.
On Monday voting for the opposition coordination council finished, with Alexey Navalny taking the top of the elected list of opposition leaders.
The voting took place both online and at voting stations organized almost in all regions of Russia, in Washington, Dresden, London, Munich, New York, Paris and even in Thailand.
After the results of the vote were announced, Vladimir Putin's press attaché Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin had not followed the vote, as it was busy with Putin meeting the Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovich. Moreover, as Peskov put it, the authorities have not decided yet whether to cooperate with the Coordination council or not.
