KRASNOYARSK, June 10 (Itar-Tass) —— United Russia candidate Edham Akbulatov is leading in the Krasnoyarsk mayoral election, judging by exit poll results. His rating nears 60%.
Self-nominated candidate Alexei Podkorytov ranks second, and A Just Russia candidate Alexander Koropachinsky goes third.
Krasnoyarsk city elections commission chairperson Anna Lisovskaya told a press briefing upon the end of the mayoral election that the ballot was calm and there were no flagrant violations.
Nevertheless, campaign representatives of some candidates, including Podkorytov, launched complaints about a number of polling stations. Votes will be counted by hand at these polling stations in order to prevent any doubts about the election fairness, Lisovskaya said.
The city elected its mayor from Edham Akbulatov (United Russia), Maxim Ivanych, Nina Kovrova and Alexander Koropachinsky (A Just Russia), Alexei Meshcheryakov and Mikhail Oskolkov (Communist Party) and Alexei Podkorytov.
Three candidates opposing United Russia withdrew from the race on June 4 in the primaries initiated by Russian businessman Mikhail Prokhorov and urged supporters to cast their votes for the fourth opposition candidate, Koropachinsky, general director of a large construction company and a candidate of A Just Russia.
