MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) — Deputies of the Moscow regional Duma on Friday made a decision to hold the elections to the regional parliament on December 4.
“Colleagues, we have made the decision to set the election date simultaneously with the day of voting at elections to the State Duma,” head of the committee on the rule of law, issues of state authority and public relations Larissa Tolkacheva said, introducing a corresponding draft resolution.
The lawmakers supported the draft resolution with 43 votes.
Earlier, a federal law was passed that allows Legislative Assemblies of the RF subjects to increase or decrease by no more than six months the term of their powers in order to hold regional elections simultaneously with elections to the State Duma. According to this norm, the Moscow region Duma passed a law reducing the term of its powers, allowing it to hold the election simultaneously with the State Duma’s – on December 4, 2011, and not in March 2012.
According to the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC), elections to legislative assemblies of all 27 RF subjects will be held simultaneously with the State Duma elections on December 4.
