The population of the Nenets autonomous district in the Russia's Far North will participate in the governor elections on Sunday
The population of the Nenets autonomous district in the Russia's Far North will participate in the governor elections on Sunday. According to deputy chair of the election committee Ivan Yevsyugin, 15 candidates participate in the race for the governor. Among those are two deputies of the local legislative assembly, a university professor, a prosecutor office employee, a journalist, several businessmen, engineers and even a guard of a local ambulance station. The incumbent governor Vladimir Butov who was initially put on the ballot, will not participate in the race. His candidature was rejected by the District Supreme Court because the court officials deem it unlawful to reelect the governor who was recently accused of beating a law enforcement officer for the third term. In order to pronounce the elections official, more than 40% of the 30,000 registered voters must come to polling stations. To ensure victory during the first round, a candidate must secure the support of more than a half of voters. Otherwise, the second round of elections is scheduled for February 6, where two favorites of the first round will face one another. The elections of deputies of the district legislative assembly are set on the same day.
