|Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny cleared the first hurdle on Sunday towards taking part in next year's presidential election Authentic Carter Hutton Jersey , even though the central election commission has previously ruled him ineligible to run.
Navalny, 41, is a fierce opponent of President Vladimir Putin, who is widely expected to win re-election in March, extending his 17 years in power.
On Sunday Navalny, a veteran campaigner against corruption among Russia's elite, won the initial support of 742 people at a gathering in a district of Moscow, above the minimum 500 required to initiate a presidential bid.
"There is no large-scale support for Putin and his rule in this country," Navalny told the gathering, describing himself as a "real candidate" for the election and threatening a boycott of the vote by his supporters if he is barred again.
But Navalny now needs to be officially registered as a candidate by Russia's central election commission, which has previously said he is ineligible due to a suspended prison sentence that he says was politically motivated.
Navalny has been jailed three times this year on charges of repeatedly organizing public meetings and rallies in violation of existing laws. He says the Kremlin is deliberately trying to thwart his political ambitions.
The European Court of Human Rights ruled in October that Navalny's 2014 fraud conviction was "arbitrary" and ordered Moscow pay compensation.
On Saturday Russia's ruling party United Russia pledged "all possible support" to the 65-year-old Putin in his bid to win a further six years in power in the March election.
Also on Saturday the Russian Communist Party named its presidential candidate, Pavel Grudinin, 57. The party came second after United Russia in the 2016 parliamentary elections.
On Sunday Russian property developer Sergei Polonsky, who has been convicted of defrauding investors, also secured enough initial backing to seek clearance from the election commission to take part in the presidential race.
Others planning to run include television personality Ksenia Sobchak, whose late father was Putin's boss in the early 1990s and journalist Ekaterina Gordon.
KAMPALA, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Uganda said on Monday that it is going to lodge a complaint to the world boxing body after it failed to include its key boxer in the draws of the on-going World Championships in Hamburg, Germany.
Kenneth Gimugu, president Uganda Boxing Federation told Xinhua that the International Boxing Association (AIBA) eliminated super heavy weight boxer David Ayiti from the entry list.
"How can you register a boxer after he qualified at the AIBA Africa Championships and when he gets to Germany you do not include him in the draw," asked Gimugu.
"We struggled to get finances to train the team and also fly them to Germany and now AIBA says the boxer cannot be entered and yet they cleared Ayiti in the previous registration," added Gimugu.
He explained that although Ayiti had lost in the AIBA Africa Championships by knockout, the boxer had rested for two months as the rules stipulate.
Meanwhile, Uganda's welter weight star boxer (69kg) Muzamiru Kakande who won gold at the AIBA Africa Championship, lost to American captain Quinton Randall in the first round of the championship, and Geoffrey Kakeeto (bantam weight -56kg) also lost to Nicaragua's Angel Jarquin by knockout.

Geneva - In a global first, the Swiss will vote Sunday on a radical proposal to provide the entire population with enough money to live on, no strings attached.
Voters are being asked whether they want all Swiss citizens, along with foreigners who have been legal residents in Switzerland for at least five years, to receive an unconditional basic income, or UBI.
Supporters say providing such an income would help fight poverty and inequality in a world where good jobs with steady salaries are becoming harder to find.
The idea is controversial, to say the least. The Swiss government and nearly all the country's political parties have urged voters to reject the initiative -- advice which 71 percent are inclined to follow, according to the latest poll.
Critics have slammed the initiative as ""a Marxist dream"", warning of sky.
