MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s State Duma lower parliament house plans to hear a report by chairman of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Vladimir Churov about the December parliamentary elections on January 27, Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin told journalists on Thursday.
“The State Duma Council discussed the issue of inviting the chairman of the Russian Central Election Commission and other officials. The State Duma plans to hear their report about the recent elections to the State Duma,” he said.
“A relevant draft resolution will be prepared by the regulations committee and signed by representatives of all the four Duma factions,” he noted. “The State Duma will hold a session on January 27, but the final resolution will be taken at a tomorrow’s meeting.
