MOSCOW, August 23 (Itar-Tass) - Ivan Melnikov, person number two in the Communist Party of the Russian Federation /CPRF/ and a candidate in September 8 election of Moscow City Mayor, is second from the top in the electoral ratings among the city’s registered voters, a report posted by the CPRF said Friday.
A poll containing the data on the voters’ preferences was taken from August 17 through to August and embraced 1,600 respondents older than 18 years old, with the pollsters interviewing people in the streets or by telephone, the CPRF said at its official website.
Melnikov’s election staff says Acting Mayor Sergei Sobyanin is likely to receive 51.2% votes September 8 and Melnikov will mostly likely turn out with 17.8%. Businessman and blogger Alexei Navalny, who represents Russia’s off-parliament opposition, is expected to get 16.4% votes.
CPRF analysts say that standing next in line are Sergei Mitrokhin of the rightwing liberal Yabloko party, Nikolai Levichev of A Just Russia party, and Mikhail Degtyaryov of the Liberal Democratic Party.
