MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) — The Information Centre “Elections-2011” operates at the building of the Russian CEC, supplying information for 2,000 Russian and foreign reporters.
The Central Election Commission told Itar-Tass that around 2,000 reporters from Russia and 30 foreign countries were accredited to work at the information centre. “Correspondents from 61 TV channels, 26 radio stations, 30 news agencies and over 40 print mass media cover the elections for the sixth State Duma,” noted a source.
The information centre will receive on-line information during December 4-5 on voting at the elections. Numerous plasma panels and large TV screens, supplying data on the progress of voting are installed at the atrium of the building under the large glazed cupola, at halls of the ground and the third stories, at the meeting hall and the CEC press centre.
When all polling stations are closed in Russia at 21.00 on December 4, the information centre will start announcing preliminary voting results. Plans also provide for sessions of TV and radio communications with the country’s regions. “A long news conference is planned by CEC chairman Vladimir Churov in the morning of December 5 where he will sum up preliminary results of the general elections,” the CEC reported.
