MOSCOW, December 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Friday’s meeting of the Public Chamber’s civil society commission ended without a result.
The participants in the meeting discussed results of the parliamentary elections, but they failed to share one view.
Some participants said about major violations during voting and during calculation of the votes. For example, Elena Lukyanova and Gleb Pavlovsky suggested the Public Chamber called for the Central Elections Commission to postpone announcement of official results of the election until claims are discussed and the votes are recalculated.
Their colleague Iosif Diskin was against the idea. He said there are no reasons “to go beyond the legal field now,” as even if the information about falsifying the votes is true, it may affect only a maximum of 600,000 votes, or about one percent, and will not influence much distribution of the mandates at the parliament.
Diskin said that rallies cannot be a form of settling the conflict.
“I would like to say that Russia’s history knows the fact, where excessive emotional perception caused to launching of a ‘red wheel’,” he said.
Another participant in the meeting Nikolai Svanidze called the power to find a compromise with those unsatisfied with calculation of the votes.
“The rally announced for Saturday is a serious test for the authorities, which has not as yet faced such problems, as things used to be moving well,” he said.
Other members of the Chamber, Elena Topoleva and Alexander Brod, joined the call to suggest common points of contact. As a result, Lukyanova and Pavlovsky walked out in protest.
