ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), April 1 (Itar-Tass) – Chairman of the Moscow Regional Election Commission Irek Vildanov hopes that the final results of the mayoral elections in the town Zhukovsky southeast of Moscow will be made public by 14:00 Moscow time on Monday.
“If nothing extraordinary happens, a press conference devoted to the final official results of the mayoral elections will be held at 14:00 Moscow time on Monday,” he told reporters.
The Zhukovsky election committee has counted the votes from 40 out of 52 polling stations (77%) so far, Vildanov recalled. Commander of the Airlift and Rescue Centre of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) Andrei Voityuk is leading with 37% of votes.
Igor Novikov, who is supported by the Civic Platform of business tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov (27.9% of votes), and Communist Alexander Anikanov (25.4% of votes), are also among the frontrunners of the mayoral election race in Zhukovsky.
Rock musician Sergei Troitsky polled 2.3% of votes so far.
Vildanov recalled that the votes are being recounted manually at nine polling stations, where the ballot paper processing systems are installed. The territorial election committee selected three polling stations in a draw for the controlling vote recount and the votes are being recounted at other six polling stations due to the petitions from the candidates and observers.
