VOLGOGRAD, April 27 (Itar-Tass) — The Astrakhan Kirovsky District Court has adjourned until May 3 the viewing of recordings from polling station web cameras, a court source told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“Today the court questioned one witness and listened to the position of the defendant – representatives of territorial elections commissions of Astrakhan. The court decided it would view recordings from polling stations in the attendance of representatives of the elections commissions from corresponding polling stations,” he said.
Ex-mayoral candidate, A Just Russia representative Oleg Shein, who filed the lawsuit via the city elections commission challenged Federal Judge Olga Morozova at the first hearing, on Thursday. He said the judge refused to accept video material, which, in his words, proved violations at polling stations. Yet the challenge was overruled.
United Russia candidate Mikhail Stolyarov was announced the winner of the Astrakhan mayoral election on March 4 with about 60% of votes. Yet A Just Russia said that its candidate, Shein, won the election. Officially, his election rating stood at 30%. A number of party members, including Shein, went on a hunger strike on March 16 to protest against the election outcome. Some opposition members from Moscow joined the hunger strike.
The Central Elections Commission said it saw no reasons for cancelling results of the Astrakhan mayoral election. Central Elections Commission Chairman Vladimir Churov and Shein jointly viewed recordings from Astrakhan polling stations. Shein appealed to the Astrakhan District Court on April 16 for invalidating the mayoral election outcome.
