Yekaterina Duntsova Denied Election Candidacy: Central Election Commission Cites Errors in Nomination Papers

Yekaterina Duntsova’s aspirations to contest the upcoming elections, advocating for peace in Ukraine and envisioning a humane Russia, were abruptly halted as Russia’s Central Election Commission rejected her nomination. The commission identified 100 errors in her nomination papers, including spelling mistakes, prompting Duntsova to express her dismay on the Telegram messaging app.

Nomination Rejection Sparks Discord

On December 23, Duntsova expressed her disappointment, revealing the rejection by the Central Election Commission due to numerous errors, including misspelled names in her nomination papers. The move raises questions about the transparency and fairness of the electoral process, with Duntsova vowing to appeal the decision in Russia’s Supreme Court.

The commission’s findings ignited a response from Ella Pamfilova, the head of Russia’s Central Election Commission, who addressed Duntsova by stating, “You are a young woman; you still have everything ahead of you. Any minus can always be turned into a plus.” The comments suggest a recognition of Duntsova’s potential political future despite the current setback.

Undeterred by the rejection, Duntsova is determined to appeal the decision and has called upon the Yabloko political party leaders to nominate her as a candidate. The Yabloko party founder and leader, Grigory Yavlinsky, indicated that he was uncertain about considering her application, adding an element of uncertainty to Duntsova’s political journey.
