MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) - The final results of elections of different levels, which were held on Sunday in most subjects of the Russian Federation, will be summed up by electoral commissions on Monday.

On September 8, around 7 thousand elections were held in Russia. A total of over 41 thousand 600 mandates claimed by about 106 thousand candidates are to be replaced on their results.

Eight regions were electing their leaders - Moscow, the Moscow Oblast, the Republic of Khakassia, Amur and Khabarovsk Krais, the Vladimir and Magadan Oblasts and Chukotka Autonomous Area. In addition, the elections of the heads of Ingushetia and Dagestan were held; however, they were elected by the parliaments of the republics.

In 16 subjects of the Russian Federation deputies of regional parliaments were elected - in the republics of Bashkortostan, Buryatia, Kalmykia and Sakha (Yakutia), Khakassia, the Chechen Republic, Trans-Baikal Krai, the Arkhangelsk, Vladimir, Ivanovo, Irkutsk, Kemerovo, Rostov, Smolensk, Ulyanovsk and Yaroslavl Oblasts. In addition, mayoral elections were held in eight administrative centres, and in 12 capital cities - deputies of urban legislative (representative) bodies of authority were elected.

The peculiarity of the Sunday elections was a low voter turnout - it was about 30 percent on the average in the country in general, which is, perhaps, the lowers turnout over the last few years.
