MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Yabloko party, which collected three percent of votes according to preliminary results of the Duma election, enjoys the right to state financing and other preferences, Chairman of the Central Election Commission Vladimir Churov said on Monday.

Besides, Yabloko will get two factions as a minimum in regional parliaments elected on December 4, Churov said.
Yabloko has collected 3. 30 percent of votes after the results of more than 95 percent of election protocols were counted. The law " On political parties" envisages that a party which collected no fewer than three percent of votes in the Duma election is entitled to state financing worth 20 rubles per vote the party received in its support.
