MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. Russia’s new Central Election Commission head Ella Pamfilova has met with US Ambassador to Russia John Tefft to discuss the September elections to Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, and the US presidential campaign.
The meeting, which was also attended by the deputy chairman of the commission, Nikolay Bulayev, was held on Wednesday, the commission said on its website. "Mr. Tefft congratulated Ella Pamfilova on her election to the post, and after this the sides discussed the issues of the upcoming federal elections in Russia and the United States."
Pamfilova, formerly Russia’s human rights commissioner, said the Central Election Commission "is seriously working to prevent violations of the legislation at the polls by all the participants of the elections," including the use of the administrative resource.
Earlier this week, Pamfilova met with Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) Michael Georg Link and French Ambassador to Russia Jean-Maurice Ripert.
The elections to the State Duma will be held on September 18. The US primaries are also underway now and the presidential elections will take place in November.
