The federal Constitutional Court will appeal to the top Yakut legislature to postpone an upcoming republican presidential election in case the court accepts for consideration a related interpolation from Yakutia's Supreme Court, Tamara Morschakova, Constitutional Court vice-president, said to a news conference in Moscow. The republican Supreme Court inquired, November 12, about the incumbent competent for nomination for a presidential poll, due December 23. The federal Supreme Court abrogated a republican Supreme Court ruling, November 20. The ruling suspended consideration of a public appeal against incumbent Mikhail Nikolayev nominated for a third presidential term--an issue on which the republican court made its inquiry with the federal Constitutional Court. The federal Supreme Court ordered to its republican analogue to consider the issue within five days.
