"Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been barred from running in next year’s presidential election after officials ruled he was ineligible to take part due to a suspended prison sentence he says was trumped up.
The decision by the central election commission was widely expected. Election officials had repeatedly declared Mr Navalny would be ineligible to run.
In total, 12 members of the 13-member commission voted to bar Mr Navalny. One member abstained, citing a possible conflict of interest.”*
