MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), said on Monday that he was dissatisfied with his party’s performance at the recent elections of various levels. He claimed that the final results had been distorted in some regions.
“The results (of the single day of voting) don’t suit us. We are dissatisfied with them. The LDPR results were distorted in separate regions such as the Krasnodar territory, the Penza and Saratov regions and the city of Cherkessk,” Zhirinovsky told a news conference on Monday.
The LDPR didn’t get a single seat in the legislative bodies in those regions.
Zhirinovsky also regrets that his party failed to win seats in the parliament of North Ossetia and gained only one mandate in the City Duma in Barnaul.
“Apparently, the authorities helped PARNAS (the People’s Freedom Party) to edge in by right and wrong so that (Vladimir) Ryzhkov made less fuss in Moscow,” the LDPR leader stressed.
Zhirinovsky believes that the party itself is to blame for defeat in some regions. The LDPR nominated Maxim Rokhmistrov, a State Duma deputy from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), as a candidate to the mayor of Khimki near Moscow. “He won only one percent of votes! Now he knows his personal rating. It’s a shame! We should never send fat and lazy deputies to elections again!” Zhirinovsky emphasized.
He put the blame for bad results at elections to the city council in Yaroslavl on the weak work of curator deputy.
Commenting on results of gubernatorial elections in which LDPR candidates took part, Zhirinovsky said, “We didn’t have any administrative resource, and we invested hundreds of times less than our rivals. Some candidates invested 300-500 million rubles in their election campaigns compared to three million rules allocated by the LDPR.”
