How was your last election in Kirov?

December 5 2007

The Governor of the Kirov region NI Shaklein commented on the results of elections of deputies of the State Duma 5-th convocation in the Kirov region:

"Today, many compare the various figures. That's right, even a proverb is that everything is known in comparison. We also compare these elections in our region with data from other regions, with the outcome of previous elections to the State Duma, held in December 2003.

In all previous elections which were held in the Soviet era, we have an unprecedented voter turnout - more than 70% kirovchan went to the polls. On the degree of activity among other regions, we - the leaders. I am very grateful to the inhabitants of the areas that showed consciousness and fulfilled their civic duty, what is it all the time we called them.

According to this index, and in general by a vote of Kirov Region today at the level of other regions looks good.

It is obvious that since 2003 the party "United Russia" has leaped forward - almost two times higher than previous figures for the number of voters who support it, increasing from 28 percent during the March elections to the Legislative Assembly of 2006 to 55% at present .

The second highest number of votes - it's more than 12% - is the Liberal Democratic Party, compared with previous elections in 2003 its performance decreased by 2%.

The third position - 11% of the vote - the Communist Party, it's about the level of the previous State Duma elections.

At the Fair Russia 8%, this average for Russia.

These are the party who is being held in the State Duma.

As always, a significant portion of our population opted for the Agrarian Party, she scored more than 6%, but in previous elections, this figure was higher - 8.5%.

We can say that for all positions of the United Russia has consolidated its position. I think this is the result of increasing confidence and to ensure the course, which meets Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the reforms that are supported by this party as a whole in the country.

Today the region has a noticeable positive change on all fronts: in the economy and addressing social issues. And while income is still insufficient in the past 4 years since the last elections to the State Duma, also doubled. It is believed that all the initiatives that we now sell in our region, with such support will continue, and after this election we have a higher rate will move forward in addressing the challenges that we still have quite a few "- the Governor said.
