Communist who took on Putin says his family was used to ban him from election

A wealthy Communist strawberry tycoon who came second to Vladimir Putin in the last presidential election has accused the authorities of using his family against him to stop him from running for parliament this week. Pavel Grudinin, 60, a former Putin supporter, attracted over 8.5 million votes in 2018 when he ran against Putin and has long been touted as a possible leader of the Communists, the second biggest party in parliament. Grudinin will not be running in a Sept. 17-19 parliamentary election though, after the Central Election Commission (CEC)refused to register him in July.
