The United Russia party, which is in the lead with 71.06% of votes in its support, will have 70 out of 75 seats in the Crimean parliament. The LDPR party has gained 8.17% support in Crimea, while ten more parties which have been contesting seats in the Crimean parliament cannot pass the five-percent election hurdle.
The election to the Crimean parliament was first held under the Russian legislation on September 14. A total of 803 candidates are contesting 75 seats in the Crimean legislature: 108 candidates were nominated from majority constituencies and the rest are running on tickets of 12 political parties.
After 50% of ballot papers were counted in Simferopol, the United Russia might hope for 32 seats in the Simferopol City Council, said member of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Valery Kryukov, citing data released by the CEC information center. He did not rule out that the final result might seriously differ from the figures available at the moment.
The September 14 election to the Crimean parliament was held for the first time under the Russian legislation since Crimea joined Russia.
