The Ministry of the Interior is preparing to announce which of 20 aspirants to the post of president have fulfilled the requirements to win a place on the ballot in January’s first direct election. Some would-be candidates may be disqualified for having false signatures among the 50,000 minimum required to stand if they do not have the support of a party in parliament. Which aspirants have made the cut will be announced on Friday afternoon. Those denied a place on the ballot have until the middle of next week to appeal to the Supreme Administrative Court.
