PRAGUE, December 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev believes that the Central Elections Commission should investigate thoroughly all probable violations at the elections, people should calm down and let the new parliament working well.
“All issues that are raised should be investigated thoroughly, and the Central Elections Commission exists for this purpose. You should remember that other investigation procedures do not exist,” Medvedev told a press conference in Prague on Thursday.
“But the investigation should be detailed, the Central Elections Commission should sum up the final results of the elections,” he said.
“The results reflect political sympathies of the society” and “the violations should be investigated, and legal decisions should be taken over them,” he said.
“The most important thing is to calm down and let the new parliament working normally,” Medvedev added.
“Nothing extraordinary happened at the elections,” the president said. “The society is becoming more competitive and already not the only force bids to rule the country,” he said.
“The result of the elections is not surprising for me. A political structure comes into existence that really meets current political preferences of people,” Medvedev said.
The president also named the recent rallies against the election results as the manifestation of democracy under the condition that they are held according to the law. “Rallies are the manifestation of democracy, but they should be held strictly at authorized places and on the parameters set in the legislation. Otherwise, some incidents may emerge that is regretful,” he said.
The president believes that “people should have an opportunity to speak up, but the most important thing is that they should express their opinion in the correct way and should not evoke any difficulties for other people and should not violate the legislation.” “This requirement should be made the top priority,” Medvedev underlined.
