MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) —— President-elect Vladimir Putin believes that all the reports about violations during the presidential campaign should be checked with maximum scrutiny.
On Tuesday Putin visited the "Election- 2012" situation monitoring center at the Moscow Juridical Academy and talked to the representatives of the observers' corps "For honest election " and participants in the " Citizens for honest election" campaign.
"Naturally, there were violations," Putin admitted. The violations should be exposed, their roots eliminated, doing all this in a manner that everything should be clear to all, Putin said, talking to young lawyers, who work there. Putin expressed hope that all the complaints will be checked and turned over to corresponding bodies to be investigated. "I hope for maximum control and monitoring of the situation so as to rule out any underhand conduct during the election," Putin said.
"An angry position assumed by activists of certain political parties is not directly connected with the results of Sunday's election. This is an element of political struggle not related to the election," Putin said.
Two months prior to the election date and on the day of the election a total of 4, 500 complaints were lodged at the Center, which representatives of the observers’ corps promised to sum up and submit an account to the president-elect.
