MOSCOW, December 19 (Itar-Tass) — The leader of Russia’s Communist Party, Gennady Zyuganov, has supported Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s initiative to install web cameras at all country’s polling stations.
“We support him (Putin). This year we installed 500 web cameras at the polling stations and at 486 polling stations with cameras we won the elections,” he said on Monday submitting his documents to the central election commission to be officially registered as a candidate for presidency.
“If we install cameras from the moment of sealing ballot boxes till ballot counting and every ballot paper will be read out to observers, then you’ll see that the result will be quite different from the one they are today programming,” the Communist party leader said.
During a televised question-and-answer session on December 15 Vladimir Putin proposed to install web cameras at all polling stations “to minimize the opportunity of pointing out that these elections or those in the future could be unfair and to knock the bottom out of those, who want to delegitimize the power in the country.”
