Statement by Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland, on the pre-electoral situation in Moscow

“I have been following recent events in the run up to elections in Moscow with concern.

Opposition candidates have reportedly been not able to stand for election. I intend to raise this with the Head of the Russian Central Electoral Commission, Ella Pamfilova. All legitimate candidates should be allowed to participate and free and fair elections must be guaranteed. As a member state of the Council of Europe Russia needs to respect European standards in the electoral process. “
