MOSCOW, December 18 (Itar-Tass) —— A rally of the Russian Communist Party protesting against the State Duma election outcome is over on Moscow’s Manezh Square. From 3,000 to 5,000 people took part in it.
Apart from party functionaries, the rally was addressed by members of public organizations, among them the Left Front, the Khimki Forest defenders and some others.
Representatives of regional organizations of the Communist Party told the protesters about their attempts to prevention election falsifications. They also expressed support to party presidential candidate Gennady Zyuganov.
More than 1,000 claims have been lodged with courts concerning election violations recorded by Communist Party members, Zyuganov said. He demanded the dismissal of the entire Central Elections Commission, including its head Vladimir Churov, and the establishment of a State Duma ad hoc commission for investigating the falsifications.
“We will never agree to the United Russia majority at the State Duma,” Communist Party deputy Valery Rashkin said. The party leaders confirmed their intention to hold a new parliamentary election in December 2012 if the Communists win the presidential election.
A Just Russia deputy Dmitry Gudkov supported the demand of Churov’s dismissal and urged the protesters to attend a rally on Sakharov Avenue on December 24. He said the rally would gather non-party members wishing to stand up for their votes.
The action lasted for about 90 minutes and ended with the Victory Day song.
The police said no incidents happened during the rally. It evaluated the number of rally participants at about 3,300 people, including the media.
