"Roundabouts", "helicopters" and "drunk voices" - as have undergone elections in Russia


On September 9, during the uniform voting day, violations, traditional for Russia, have been recorded. They are declared by independent observers, it becomes more difficult for them to work.

In Russia has come to the end the uniform voting day. On September 9 across the whole country there have passed about 4,7 thousand elections of different level, including in 22 subjects direct elections of governors have taken place. The Russian Central Election Commission plans to announce the final results on September 14, however it is already known that in most of subjects the victory was won by candidates from the party of the power. DW has collected the information about what violations have been revealed, and the system of observation in Russia how effectively works.

As is arranged the system of observation of elections

according to the CEC, all across Russia more than 120 thousand observers worked at polling precincts. In the capital where elected the city's mayor, more than about 10 thousand observers were the share of 3,8 thousand sites. So the official statistics looks. However it becomes clear that in practice the system of observation is so opaque what to understand how many observers from what political forces and movements in reality monitored vote process, extremely difficult. Under the law on elections, observers each political party which has registered the candidate, each candidate and also "subjects of public control" has directly the right to appoint

As a result they, as a rule, go to sites either as journalists, or as representatives of this or that party or the candidate. The movement in protection of the rights of voters Golosa is so forced to work, in particular. On September 9 through the whole country several thousands of his volunteers worked in such mode, the cochairman of the movement Grigory Melkonyants has reported to DW.

Specifics of violations on governor's and municipal elections

All information from independent observers was flown down in the situational center "Golosa" in Moscow. In the evening on September 9 the coordinator of network of regional offices of the movement "Golos" Vitaly Averin who was on duty in the center from the moment of opening of the first site in the Irkutsk region has told DW about how there has taken place the uniform voting day.

according to him if to speak about governor's elections, then in the majority of regions because of the municipal filter they became "absolutely noncompetitive". "In respect of violations nothing new has been invented here. In regions where elect the governor, it mainly develops into mobilization of administratively dependent electorate", - he has reported.

Typical violations were observed also on local municipal elections and выб
