The Other Russia Coalition Leader Eduard Limonov applied to the Russian Justice Ministry on Monday to register a new political party of the same name.
"Judging from my experience, they will not register us," Limonov said. "[Their] answer will be a political. They will probably come up with some reason for their refusal, but we'll see."
Limonov said in late June he was forming a new opposition party to run in the 2011 parliamentary elections.
The Other Russia coalition, which no longer exists, included the National Bolshevik Party, outlawed in 2007, former prime minister Mikhail Kasyanov's People's Democratic Union and ex-chess champion Garry Kasparov's United Civil Front. Kasyanov pulled out in 2007, while Kasparov drifted toward the opposition Solidarity movement.
