MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Foundation for Free Elections has received 8,317 hotline calls during the election campaign, the foundation’s Executive Director Igor Bogdanov said on Monday at the Information Centre of the RF Central Election Commission (CEC).
“There have been 1,100 calls signalling about violations of electoral law, most of them have not been confirmed,” he said.
According to Bogdanov, in 61 percent of the cases (5,072 calls) citizens asked for clarification of election laws and certain election procedures.
As many as 17.5 percent of calls (1,459) contained requests of settling that or other social problems of everyday life.
The largest number of calls was made from the Samara (668), Kursk (421), Saratov (418) regions and the city of Moscow (350). “This does not testify to some particularly tense situation with the elections in these regions,” Bogdanov believes.
