MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s opposition Right Cause party has said it is going to challenge the results of voting in the lections of legislative assemblies of St. Petersburg and the Moscow region.
“As of 05:00 a.m. Moscow time, the party’s election headquarters registered serious violations of the elections laws by local election commissions in these two regions,” a party sauce said.
“We are sure our votes were simply stolen at many polling stations in these regions. It is clear from the results of exit polls and from reports of Right Cause observers and election commission members,” said Andrei Dunayev, the chairman of the party’s executive committee, who topped the party election list. “We shall investigate into each case and shall use all legal means to win seats in regional legislatures.”
The party lawyers continue to collect information about breaches and are preparing complaints to the Central Election Commission, and well as claims to police and prosecutor’s office. “Right Cause will do its best to have votes cast in elections to regional legislatures be counted fairly,” he said.
According to results of 4.52 a.m. Moscow time, Right Cause won a mere 0.81 percent of the vote in elections to St. Petersburg’s Legislative Assembly. In elections to the Moscow Region Duma, the party scored 2.57 percent. Here, its lection list was topped by one the party leaders Boris Nadezhdin.
