MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. United Russia continues to lead in the quarterly rankings of party activity compiled by the Institute for Socio-Economic and Political Studies (ISEPS Foundation), a non-profit foundation established in Moscow in 2012. The study records the positions of the parties at the start of the big September election cycle.
"The parties have paid more attention to the mid-term local elections, nominating their candidates twice as often than at the beginning of the year. While only 14 parties took part in the first quarter of the elections, the number of parties rose to 16 by the second quarter," the release says.
All parties were evaluated in terms of electoral activity and information efficiency.
First place went to the United Russia. "The party is using its own brand in the vast majority of campaigns, and the ratio of elected United Russia candidates exceeds 75%," the ISEPS notes.
The second and third places go to Russia’s Communist Party and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) respectively. However, the Communists have increased the gap a little bit. "The Communist Party turned out to be more successful in the mid-term local elections, winning twice as many seats, but the LDPR is ahead of the Communists in terms of activity in the nomination of candidates," the study says.
The Rodina (Motherland) party has taken the lead among the non-parliamentary parties. The party has outdistanced its rivals from "small parties" not only in terms of activity and performance during the elections, but also in its consistency to implement program goals.
