Russian supreme court approves ban against opposition leader Navalny from 2018 presidential election

Reuters , Saturday 30 Dec 2017


Russia's Supreme Court on Saturday dismissed an appeal by Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny against a decision by the country's central election commission to bar him from taking part in next year's presidential election.

The commission this week barred Navalny from taking part in the March 18 vote because of a suspended prison sentence he says was trumped up.
