MOSCOW, December 11 (Itar-Tass) — Following the summing up of official results of the State Duma elections, their results can be challenged, including at specific polling stations, only in courts. This was confirmed by CEC secretary Nikolai Konkin on Sunday, replying a Tass question.
Member of the Central Election Commission Nina Kulyasova explained that “suits can be sent to judicial instances which are at the same level as election commissions, whose protocols are challenged”. “If a court draws the conclusion that results do not reflect the real polling results, it will be made binding on an election commission of an appropriate level to make changes in a protocol,” she said.
The CEC member informed that these changes would be later brought to higher election commissions up to the CEC which makes corrections in official results of elections.
Incidentally, such cases already took place in practices of federal election campaigns sometimes several months after Election Day. However, the matter in question was very small quantities in all cases when the CEC had to make changes in a protocol of federal elections. These numbers were unable to change the general results of elections.
The Central Election Commission summed up the official results of the State Duma elections on December 9.
