YEKATERINBURG, September 9. (Itar-Tass). – Candidate from Civic Platform political party Yevgeny Roizman wins the Yekaterinburg mayoral election. As reported on Monday, September 9, by the regional election committee, after processing data from 535 election wards (out of 565 election wards in total) Roizman has 33.21% of votes.
His nearest rival, Yakov Silin from United Russia party, has gained 29.87%. Third comes the representative of A Just Russia party Alexander Burkov with 20.16% of votes.
Adjusted total of election will be announced later on Monday on a press conference with the head of Yekaterinburg’s city election committee Ilya Zakharov, which will take place in ITAR-TASS Urals regional information center at 6 a.m. GMT.
Head of City Without Drugs Foundation has been proposed by Civic Platform to run the mayoral election in Yekaterinburg.
All in all, there were 14 candidates participating in the election. Three of them had the same surname.
Later on Monday the city election commitee reported, however, that the results on several election wards might be annuled. According to preliminary data, there have been reported voting offences and mistakes when counting the votes.
At present, regional prosecutors are looking into information about Roizman's links to ethnic criminal groups, reported by a federal television channel. The Federal Security Service department in the Sverdlovsk Region also opened a criminal case over the disclosure of the state secret after head of the City Without Drugs Foundation Yevgeny Roizman filed a plea in the investigating agencies. “The printouts of my telephone conversations were found at the former official of the Sverdlovsk regional prosecutor’s office,” Roizman claimed. “To my mind, there was no such precedence here,” he added.
