MOSCOW, September 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s election campaign proceeds in a calm atmosphere with much less violations registered than those during the State Duma elections and the presidential race, representatives of the association of non-governmental organizations protecting the voting rights Civil Control told a news conference at the Central Election Commission’s press service on Sunday.
On the single voting day the association has already received 397 applications from citizens. Of them 300 are requests for explaining the legislation and providing election-related consultations. “There are much less violations than those during the Duma campaign and the presidential race,” said Vladislav Grib, deputy secretary of the Russian Public Chamber and Civil Control co-chair.
The association’s co-chair, Alexander Brod, said violations were mainly related to illegal election campaigning and missing names of citizens on the voters lists. “Undoubtedly, there are some problems reported from the regions, but they are not critical,” he said.
