MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin hopes courts will objectively consider complaints about vote rigging.
Election commissions have the right to re-count votes until the final results are summed up, he noted at the televised conference.
It was done in some cases, for example in St. Petersburg, following the demand of opposition parties, he said. “But when the final line is drawn, there is another way -- to appeal to courts.”
The courts are expected to act energetically and objectively, the premier stressed.
