MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) — The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has recognised the Russian parliamentary elections valid, head of the PACE delegation Tiny Kox said.
According to him, the parliamentary elections in Russia will change the membership of the new Duma.
Tiny Kox thanked the Russian colleagues for cooperation and also noted that Russia is capable of holding more advanced elections. The authorities can organise fairer elections, believes the PACE delegation head.
According to a PACE press release, “Yesterday’s elections proved that the Russian people can form the future of this country by expressing their will despite many obstacles. However, changes are needed for the will of the people to be respected. I particularly noticed the interference of the state in all levels of political life, the lack of necessary conditions for a fair competition and no independence of the media. I honour the effort of the Russian people to shape their democratic future in line with our common commitments,” said Petros Efthymiou, the Special Co-ordinator to lead the short-term OSCE observer mission and Head of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly delegation.
