MOSCOW, February 3 (Itar-Tass) — Chairman of Russia’s Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov asked the CIS observes to comment on Russia’s media coverage of the presidential election campaign.
“Please give objective comments on the media input in the presidential election campaign, on their attitude to all the five candidates, and on the opportunities they get for agitation in mass media,” he told a meeting with leaders of the CIS observers on Friday.
Churov explained the request by the fact that “following the international monitoring of the parliamentary elections, we noted a very unfair approah of mass media and rather subjective media choices .”
“In total, about 600 international observers or more are expected to monitor the presidential elections,” Churov said earlier, including OSCE/ODIHR, PACE, CIS, SOC and other international organisations.
