Russia's opposition alliance has nominated democracy activist and former world chess champion Garry Kasparov as its candidate in next year's presidential election.
A spokeswoman for the "Other Russia" alliance told reporters in Moscow that Kasparov won in the first round of party balloting today (Sunday). The coalition unites liberals, leftists and nationalists in opposition to President Vladimir Putin.
The presidential election is set for early March.
The Other Russia coalition receives little coverage from Russian media, most of which is under state control and loyal to Mr. Putin. The coalition also has been undermined by internal disputes pitting liberals and leftists against nationalists.
The coalition has been targeted repeatedly this year by local and federal Russian authorities, as it has sought to protest what it says is a rollback of democratic practices under Mr. Putin's leadership.
