The regional branch of the Communist party at the party conference on Saturday decided not to nominate a candidate for election of the Governor of Primorye, told RIA Novosti Andrei Ishchenko, who participated in the previous elections of the head region.

«The Communist party decided not to participate in elections of the head of Primorye, not to nominate a candidate. This is due to the fact that the party does not recognize the cancellation of the results of the September elections,» — said Ishchenko.

Ishchenko has expressed readiness to challenge the results in the three territories, Ussuriysk, Artyom and Nakhodka. All, they filed more than 30 lawsuits, said the candidate from the Communist party.
