Judicial zilch opposition

December 23 2009

Three parliamentary parties was created in October of this year's demarche in the State Duma in protest against the unfair, in their opinion, the outcome of the election on October 11, is still not in a hurry to prove his point of view in a lawful manner, postponing indefinitely the promised delivery of hundreds of lawsuits .

LDPR leader said, "about the total falsification" of the election results and demanded their withdrawal across the country, representatives of the Communist Party and Just Russia were more moderate in their desires, enter only those areas where they failed to obtain positive results, while agreeing, however, with the "unprecedented" number of violations. The head of state, taking the leaders of rebellious parties, advised all claims go to court: "There are constitutional rights, law and order to challenge election results. This is an indispensable thing. Without these conditions, there is no electoral system" - the president said. At the same time, in fact, the whole rebellion ended. As it turned out, the opposition did not find any other reasons than emotion.

Initially, however, party members rather boldly stated its intention to overwhelm the courts claims. Only the Communists are supposed to submit a thousand claims in Moscow. No less than a hundred lawsuits were planning to prepare zhirinovtsy. In "A Just Russia also threatened violators with all possible penalties, but the number of recorded violations to be addressed in the courts, wisely kept silent.

To date, the situation is a challenge to the election results as follows.

According to first deputy head of the LDPR faction Maxim Rohmistrova, Moscow city branch of the party filed three lawsuits and two more are under preparation. Another 89 claims filed by members of the Liberal Democratic Party, who were members of election commissions with decisive vote. With regard to data on Russia as a whole, the Liberal Democratic Party found it difficult to give any information on this issue.

The Communists have slightly better stats. Starting from October 11, the Communist Party filed an action in court 53 claims, of which three have already been rejected, and the rest are still pending. In this case, it was only three regions - Moscow, the republic of Mari El and the Tula region.

In the "Just Russia" continues to prefer not to answer questions about the judicial term. But it is not surprising. Ground disturbance caused spravedlivorossov mayoral elections Astrakhan. However, the recognition of the candidate of the "Fair Russia" Oleg Shein, on his hands there is no documentary evidence of voting irregularities, which could present as evidence in court. Noting in an interview NewsInfo presence recorded his staff disruption to the city Election Commission, Mr. Shein recognizes that "documentary evidence (violations - approx. Aut.) Are not very numerous."

In short, the results of perturbation opposition vote was nothing more than the traditional attempt to justify himself for his loss. Moreover, according to the Central Election Commission officially registered complaints following the October elections was much smaller than during the spring campaign. In March this year, we recall, was 3360 election campaigns of various levels at the end of which the CEC had received 360 complaints. That is one complaint accounted for more than nine electoral campaigns. In October 6780 election campaigns. The CEC received 453 complaints, which is one complaint more than 14 election campaigns.
