|Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Sunday cleared the first hurdle towards taking part in next year's presidential election Cheap Nike Air Max 270 Blue , 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 17 years in power.
A veteran campaigner against corruption among Russia's elite, he 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 Cheap Nike Air Max 270 Black ," Navalny told the meeting, describing himself as a "real candidate" for election and threatening a boycott of the vote by his supporters if he is barred from running.
On Sunday evening, Navalny submitted the documents to the central election commission needed to be registered as a candidate.
The commission, which extended its working hours on Sunday to take the documents, has five days in which to decide whether Navalny will be registered.
The commission has previously said he is ineligible due to a suspended prison sentence that he says was politically motivated.
"We are capable of opposing the current authorities. Our key demand is to be allowed to take part in the elections," Navalny told reporters as he was leaving the election commission building in the central Moscow.
Navalny has been jailed three times this year on charges of repeatedly organizing public meetings and rallies in violation of existing laws.
The European Court of Human Rights ruled in October that Navalny's conviction for fraud in 2014 was "arbitrary" and ordered Moscow to pay him compensation.
The ruling party United Russia meeting on Saturday 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.
The Communist Party Cheap Nike Air Max 270 White , which came second after United Russia in a parliamentary election last year, named Pavel Grudinin, 57, as its candidate, dropping veteran party leader Gennady Zyuganov.
Another politician who has run before, Sergei Mironov from A Just Russia party Cheap Nike Air Max 270 , said his party had decided to support Putin instead and not propose its own candidate.
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, journalist Ekaterina Gordon.

Leonard Nimoy Cheap Air Max 270 Teal , the actor known and loved by generations of ""Star Trek"" fans as the pointy-eared, purely logical science officer Mr. Spock, has died.
Nimoy's son, Adam Nimoy, said the actor died Friday of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at his Los Angeles home. He was 83.
Although Leonard Nimoy followed his 1966-69 ""Star Trek"" run with a notable career as both an actor and director, in the public's mind he would always be Spock. His half-human Cheap Air Max 270 Colorways , half-Vulcan character was the calm counterpoint to William Shatner's often-emotional Captain Kirk on one of television and film's most revered cult series.
Nimoy's ambivalence to the role was reflected in the titles of his two autobiographies, ""I Am Not Spock"" (1975) and ""I Am Spock"" (1995).
After ""Star Trek"" ended, the actor immediately joined the hit adventure series ""Mission Impossible"" as Paris, the mission team's master of disguises. From 1976 to 1982 he hosted the syndicated TV series ""In Search of ... "" which attempted to probe such mysteries as the legend of the Loch Ness Monster and the disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart.
He played Israeli leader Golda Meir's husband opposite Ingrid Bergman in the TV drama ""A Woman Called Golda"" and Vincent van Gogh in ""Vincent,"" a one-man stage show on the life of the troubled painter. He continued to work well into his 70s, playing gazillionaire genius William Bell in the Fox series ""Fringe.""
He also directed several films Cheap Air Max 270 Blue , including the hit comedy ""Three Men and a Baby"" and appeared in such plays as ""A Streetcar Named Desire,"" ""Cat on a Hot Tim Roof,"" ""Fiddler on the Roof,"" ""The King and I,"" ""My Fair Lady"" and ""Equus."" He also published books of poems, children's stories and his own photographs.
But he could never really escape the role that took him overnight from bit-part actor status to TV star Cheap Air Max 270 Black , and in a 1995 interview he sought to analyze the popularity of Spock, the green-blooded space traveler who aspired to live a life based on pure logic.
People identified with Spock because they ""recognize in themselves this wish that they could be logical and avoid the pain of anger and confrontation,"" Nimoy concluded.
""How many times have we come away from an argument wishing we had said and done something different?"" he asked.
In the years immediately after ""Star Trek"" left television, Nimoy tried to shun the role, but he eventually came to embrace it, lampooning himself on such TV shows as ""Futurama Cheap Air Max 270 White ,"" ""Duckman"" and ""The Simpsons"" and in commercials.
He became Spock after ""Star Trek"" creator Gene Roddenberry was impressed by his work in guest appearances on the TV shows ""The Lieutenant"" and ""Dr. Kildare.""
The space adventure set in the 23rd century had an unimpressive debut on NBC on Sept. 8, 1966, and it struggled during its three seasons to find an audience other than teenage boys. It seemed headed for oblivion after it was canceled in 1969, but its dedicated legion of fans, who called themselves Trekkies, k.
