MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — The Communists offer a constitutional reform as an integral part of the election program of the Communist presidential candidate - the leader of the Communist Party Gennady Zyuganov. On January 11, Zyuganov told a press conference in Moscow that the party will demand an election rerun in the State Duma in December 2012. However, the experts believe that the Communists will not succeed to play in the hands of the protest moods.
In case of Zyuganov’s victory at the presidential elections the Communists are planning to hold new elections in the State Duma in December 2012, preliminarily dismissing Chairman of the Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov.
The Communist Party also offers to increase a campaigning period in the media, urge all candidates to have open debates, envisage the procedure to recall deputies for the non-fulfilment of election pledges and to introduce direct gubernatorial elections. The Communists want to limit the number of presidential terms to two terms. Secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee Sergei Obukhov even proposed to take the election rigging as an attempt to seize power, which should be sentenced with “20 years without the statute of limitation.”
