In a recent turn of events, Pavle Bihali, a representative of the Russian Minority Alliance, will not be able to exercise his right to vote in the forthcoming elections. The Republic Electoral Commission (RIK) has unanimously decided not to proclaim the electoral list of the Russian Minority Alliance - Pavle Bihali, Gavrin Hristos Aleksopulos.
Electoral List Dismissed
The list in question was backed by the Serbian Russian Party 'Wolves' and the Serbian Greek Movement 'Pavle Bihali Gavrin'. However, it has been dismissed on account of Bihali's absence from the electoral register. Furthermore, it came to light that the list received support from only 1,319 legally valid voter statements, a number deemed insufficient by the commission.
Other Parties Get Green Light
While the Russian Minority Alliance faces this setback, some other parties have successfully secured their place in the parliamentary polls slated for December 17. The national electoral commission of Serbia approved the electoral lists for the 'Cedomir Jovanovic - It Must Be Done Differently' and the 'Russian Party - Slobodan Nikolic'.
Public Prosecutor's Office Seeks Ban on Levijatan
In a related development, the Public Prosecutor's Office is seeking a ban on the Levijatan organization. Bihali, however, claims ignorance regarding this organization and its activities.
