MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) — Leader of A Just Russia, ex-presidential candidate Sergei Mironov has proposed to annul the RF presidential election results at the polling stations where violations were recorded and bring those responsible for falsifications to criminal liability.
“Violations were recorded mainly at the first thousands of the total 96 thousand polling stations. The election results there should be annulled, and those responsible punished,” he told journalists on Monday. The party leader said that such a step would be an adequate answer to the street protests and would make it possible to preserve stability in the country.
At the same time Mironov is certain that “this will not affect in any way” the results and legitimacy of the election. “This will not affect in any way the general results, the balance. Putin’s victory in the first round is obvious. The same as obvious are violations,” he concluded.
According to the final data of the Central Election Commission (CEC), Putin got at the election 45 million and 607.075 thousand votes, which is 63.60 percent. Leader of the Communist Party (CPRF) Gennady Zyuganov scored 17.18 percent of the vote (12 million and 318.352 people voted for him). Self-nominee Mikhail Prokhorov was supported at the election by 5 million and 722.508 voters – 7.98 percent. LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky won the support of 4 million and 458.103 voters – 6.22 percent. Leader of A Just Russia Sergei Mironov is at the bottom of the list with the support of 2 million and 763.935 voters or 3.85 percent.
