MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - As many as 433,216,500 roubles will be allocated from the Moscow city budget to finance the mayoral elections due in September, the chairman of the Moscow city election commission, Valentin Gorbunov, said on Thursday.
According to Gorbunov, a total of 394.7 million of that sum will go to subordinate election commissions. The city election commission will spend 38.5 million roubles to finance the preparation for and the holding of the mayoral elections. About nine million roubles will be used to print protocols and ballot papers.
“All calculations have been made on the basis of the elections of the Russian president in 2012 with due account of the 2013 deflators,” Gorbunov said.
Apart from that, the Moscow city election commission appointed television and radio broadcasters that will be obliged to offer free air time to candidates during the election campaign. These include the television companies Moscow 24 and Doveriye, and the radio stations Moscow FM and Govorit Moskva.
