The Sunday elections in regional legislatures “were valid in all these regions”
The Sunday elections in regional legislatures, which were held in 14 constituent territories of Russia, “were valid in all these regions,” Central Election Commission Chairman Alexander Veshnyakov told a Monday press conference, which was devoted to the preliminary results of the elections. According to him, during the elections “632 deputy mandates were elected.” “In 11 constituent territories of Russia the elections were held according to the mixed system, so that a half of deputies were elected on party tickets, and another half on the majority system in one-mandate constituencies,” Veshnyakov emphasized. “In three regions – Dagestan, Moscow region and Petersburg for the first time the elections were held only on the proportionate system that is the system, which will be used during the elections in the State Duma in 2007,” he pointed out. He recalled that “there was a seven-percent threshold that parties elected on the proportionate system should pass.” According to Veshnyakov, “The average turnout at the regional parliamentary elections amounted to 39.14 percent.” “The turnout at the March 11 elections in legislative bodies of power was 1.6 percent higher than four years ago, where the previous regional parliamentary elections were held. And it was two percent higher than during the 2006 regional parliamentary elections,” he indicated.
