MOSCOW, December 6 (Itar-Tass) – Chairman of Russia’s Central Electoral Commission, Vladimir Churov, has asked leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov to clarify the party’s outlooks for occupying the mandates of deputies in the State Duma, which they received in the Sunday parliamentary election.
The CEC press service said Churov sent a letter to Zyuganov demanding explanations for the statement that the latter man made Monday, saying he found the election “absolutely illegitimate from both the legal and the moral angle of view.”
Zyuganov also claimed that 12% to 15% votes had been rigged.
“I would like to ask you to clarify if your statement means that all the deputies of the State Duma of the sixth convocation, which the Communist Party of the Russian Federation placed on its party ticket, are going to submit written waivers of their deputy mandates to the CEC,” Churov said in his letter.
He also asked Zyuganov to make it clear if he disagrees with a material a secretary of the Communist Party’s Central Committee submitted for a competition of forecasts for the results of elections that was held by the CEC.
The forecast suggested that the United Russia party was to get 46% voted, the Communist Party – 19.16% votes, the Just Russia party – 12%, and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia /LDPR/ -- 11%.
The preliminary results of the election that Churov made public Monday said United Russia had gotten 49.54% votes, the Communists Party – 19.16%, Just Russia -- 13.22%, and the LDPR – 11.66%.
