MOSCOW - Russia's liberal opposition said on Wednesday that the authorities had refused to register its coalition as a political party, a decision that would prevent it from taking part in the December parliamentary election.

The leaders of the Party of People's Freedom had said they wanted to compete in the December election and to field a candidate in the March 2012 presidential election to challenge the Kremlin's dominance of the political system.

A spokesman for the Justice Ministry refused immediate comment, saying that he had heard nothing about any such decision.
