The Central Elections Commission will have a meeting at 8 p.m. Moscow time on Friday to make public the official results of the elections to the sixth State Duma.
“The Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily will publish the final documents of the Central Elections Commission in its Saturday issue, Kuznetsov elaborated. “We will publish the data, what percentage of votes each party, which was running in the parliamentary elections, gained.
