MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) — After the processing of 95 percent of the final election protocols, the United Russia party scored at the State Duma elections 49.67 percent of the vote, secretary of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Nikolai Konkin said on Monday.
The Communist Party (CPRF), according to preliminary data, is second with 19.13 percent. The Just Russia party has scored 13.18 percent. The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) with 11.66 percent is the last that passed to the parliament.
The CEC secretary reported the Yabloko has so far scored 3.25 percent, Patriots of Russia – 0.96 percent, Right Cause gets a little more than half a percent of the vote. Konkin noted that “these parties will not have Duma mandates.” Moreover, “they will not get those 1 - 2 mandates, provided under the preferential legislative quota” for parties that get 6 - 5 percent of the vote,” he said.
The CEC secretary said that the final protocols are still being transferred to the GAS Vybory (Gas Elections) state automatic system. At the same time he confirmed that the total preliminary results have not been summarized so far “not only in remote areas, but also in St. Petersburg and Moscow.”
The preliminary data from the elections to the sixth State Duma are soon to be announced.
The possible number of seats that the parties winning in the Duma elections can get has also been named. Thus, according to unofficial data, United Russia can get 237 seats out of 450 (instead of 315 presently). According to preliminary data, the Communist Party claims 94 mandates (in the previous State Duma the Communists had 57 seats). Just Russia can get 61 mandates (in the fifth Duma they had 38 seats).
Judging by the preliminary data, LDPR has also increased its parliamentary representation - the party may get 58 seats, which is by 18 seats more than it got in the previous elections.
These data are unofficial and are based on calculations of political scientists and experts.
