MOSCOW, March 5 (Itar-Tass) — Election results were invalidated on Monday at two polling stations – one in Dagestan and another in Moscow, Russian Central Election Commission head Vladimir Churov said.
Referring to a scandalous story at Dagestan’s polling station 1402 where an alleged ballot stuffing had been fixed, Churov said “It was not a ballot stuffing, it was a fatal error of members of the district election commission”.
“They began feeding into the ballot paper processing system ballots of people who had voted at home without waiting for the voting to end,” he explained. However, although it was an error, the result of the voting at that polling station was declared invalid.
A You Tube video showed men in the southern region of Dagestan stuffing ballots into boxes one after another.
Besides, voting results have been also invalidated at another polling station in Moscow, where law was violated in putting voters on the lists.
Earlier, Churov’s deputy Stanislav Vavilov said the CEC received 178 petitions concerning “supposed violations” on the day of the election. According to him, 106 petitions came from the political parties, including 47 from the CPRF, 49 from the Liberal Democratic Party, and ten from A Just Russia Party. The Central Election Commission received 63 petitions from voters, 56 – from candidates and another 40 – from State Duma parliamentarians. Three more petitions were received from election commissions, two – from self-government agencies and one – from a media outlet.
“We will look into them and see how many of them will be confirmed,” Vavilov said.
