Gorizbirkom: election of the mayor of Sochi are no violations

April 26 2009

Opposition claims of massive irregularities in the election of the mayor of Sochi are totally groundless. This was told the head of the Sochi gorizbirkoma Yuri Rykov. According to him, for the entire period up to 16 hours of the day the election commission has received only 2 complaints formalized.

For example, one of the local residents complained that he was not open on time the polling station. She got there at 8:05, but she was asked to wait. "At this time the Commission carried out the procedure prescribed in the legislation - billed urn, sealed it, then lowered in the presence of all early voting ballots," - explains the reasons for the delay in an interview with Yuri Rykov .

Another complaint came from the Communists, who felt that they "talked rudely." "Yesterday, they avoided areas, taking them on video - more than 5 sites. At the last station they were asked," do not flicker, and sit down and really explain the reason for the visit.'s Response was "no need to explain anything you do not meet us as expected, Commission staff was told "you do not know their rights and violate our." Now the Commission considered a complaint, they presented a video, we figured out, "- said the head gorizbirkoma.

Should not be taken seriously and the statement of some opposition candidates alleging too large percentage of early voters that, in their opinion, evidence of massive fraud. Thus, the right to vote early availed 10.08% of voters. Yuri Rykov explained that so generally vote in about five percent of voters. Percentage increase in turnout by half due to the fact that "we have" a commemoration of the "26 and 27 numbers - when people leave the graves of their relatives. Probably do not live in Sochi, people do not know," explained Yuri Rykov.

In addition, the head gorizbirkoma not confirmed the information allegedly not sewed in the list of observers and installed on a section of the party flag of the United Russia.

"The election laws of the Krasnodar Territory there are no requirements on the binding of lists - lists of voters. Each sheet is signed, notarized, observers can check them visually, to see - it's nobody and nobody forbids" - said Yuri Rykov.

As for the flag, in the opinion of the head gorizbirkoma expressed surprise at the lack of complaints about the violation. "If people see a violation of civil liability - why we did not have complaints, let them who saw will give a formal complaint, notify the address - we will immediately drive out to see, inspect and take action to remove. We checked - for 50 meters to areas no billboards are not hung . Yes, and judge for yourself - what is the meaning of "United Russia" to display its flag in front of polling station? By the way, the flag of any party, in my opinion, the billboards is not - if there is some kind of party cell, which thus made out, "- he said.
