SARANSK, December 5 (Itar-Tass) — A total of 91.88 percent of the votes were cast in favor of United Russia at the election to the State Duma lower house of parliament on Sunday, according to preliminary data of the republican election commission.
The other parties failed to receive at least the necessary seven percent of the vote. The Communist Party received 4.26 percent of the votes, the Liberal Democratic Party – 1.54 percent, the Just Russia Party – 1.3 percent, while Patriots of Russia and Right Cause got less than one percent of the votes.
The voter turnout was one of the highest among the Russian regions – 90.58 percent, the secretary of the election commission, Nina Chudayeva, stressed. It was almost 100 percent in same rural areas, and exceeded 84 percent even in traditionally less active Saransk.
At the previous election to the State Duma lower house, in 2007, United Russia secured 93.41 percent of the votes.
