MOSCOW, December 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Just Russia Party refuses to recognize the results of the election in St Petersburg. Oksana Dmitriyeva, the leader of St Petersburg branch of the party, confirmed this on Monday.
She said massive falsification took place in St Petersburg. She complained over the fact that ballots had been deliberately collected in an alphabetic order. Ballots marked in advance were illegally used. “All the violations have been registered and are presently being processed. It can be stated now that the Just Russia Party refuses to recognize the results of the voting in St Petersburg. Falsification was massive. The will of people of St Petersburg was absolutely distorted. We do not recognize the results of the election either to the State Duma or to the Legislative Assembly,” Dmitriyeva said. She stressed that the party “is ready for a most decisive protest.” “We are ready to do for this not for our own sake but for the sake of people of St Petersburg. We cannot deceive people who, having confidence in us, went to the polling stations,” she stressed. Dmitriyeva said that unless the due response comes to these addresses, members of the Just Russia Party will be “ready in principle to various forms of protest, including rallies and marches.”
Asked by Itar-Tass if the stand of Just Russia means that it may refuse to work in the St Petersburg parliament in the event of the official confirmation of the election results in St Petersburg without taking into consideration Just Russia’s demands, Dmitriyeva answered “this will be the subject of further discussions and actions.”
Leader of the Just Russia Party Sergei Mironov, too, stated earlier the refusal to recognize the results of the election in St Petersburg. He said, “Gross falsification has taken place.” “Therefore we will demand the recounting of the votes to establish the real will of citizens,” Mironov said. He said he would turn to the Central Electoral Commission, to the president and to the prime minister. He made assurances he was not going to put up with the falsified results for the simple reason that he respects his fellow-citizens. “We will insist on the recounting of the votes,” he declared. “This is cheating,” he said.
Representatives of the Right Cause Party also insist on the recounting of the results of the St Petersburg elections. “We will prove the facts of violations and on this basis demand the recounting of the votes,” representatives of the party said.
