MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) ——Russia’s opposition Yabloko party says the results of the parliamentary polls of December 4 were falsified and pledges to seek their cancellation, Yabloko leader Grigory Yavlinsky said on Wednesday.
According to Yavlinsky, his party’s results have been reduced about two-fold, judging by observers’ reports. “We will engage men of law, lawyers; we will go through all courts from the beginning to the end. We will do our utmost to have voting results at some polling stations cancelled,” he vowed.
The party will also seek resignation of the current chairman of the Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, and “dismantling the entire Churov’s vertical.” In his words, the party is working on the project preliminarily called as “Churov’s list.”
“We want to make a list of those, who turn a blind eye on the theft of votes and extermination of political parties,” he said.
Moreover, in his words, some parties, which have managed to win seats in a new parliament, also speak about election rigging. “On behalf of Yabloko, I suggest that all the parties, which speak about the ballot rigging, should abdicate their seats in order to hold new elections. It will be a serious political step, in this case, no rallies and clashes with police will be needed,” he said.
Yavlinsky stressed that his party does not accept revolutionary actions. “We favor evolutionary development,” he noted. “Revolutions are conceived by idealists, led by fanatics, and their results are to the avail of villains.” In his words, Yabloko stands for a European-type democracy in Russia but is fully aware that the path to it is long and windy.
At the same time, Yabloko leaders reiterated their readiness to take part in civic actions. The party’s chairman, Sergei Mitrokhin, said he had accepted a Solidarity invitation to speak at a rally on December 10. Apart from that, the party plans to stage its own action For Fair Elections on December 17. “We can say it for sure that the election results have nothing to do with political realities in the country and the Duma composition is in discord with the political landscape in Russia,” he stressed.
