MOSCOW, March 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The principle of equality of the presidential candidates' coverage in mass media in the presidential election campaign has been observed, Russian Central Election Commission member Maya Grishina told a press conference on Friday.
According to the official, the CEC working group received complaints only from two of the candidates about "shortage of media attention", but the complaints were unfounded.
Grishina believes the campaign was marked by even higher media attention to the candidates. Media did not only provide possibilities for the publicity campaigns, but themselves actively gave coverage of the candidates' activities. Reporters even themselves accompanied them.
Analytical materials in media on the candidates' programmes are not considered as electioneering, she said, explaining that the articles were expected just to help readers to better understand the programmes.
Reporters have the right to be present at polling stations, if they present their identity cards. They are allowed to photograph, make a videotape and watch the counting of votes.
The vote results may be summed up by Women's Day, March 8, while the law gives more time – until March 15, she said.
