Communist Party refused to recognize the results of electronic voting in Moscow

The Communist Party of the Russian Federation will not recognize the results of remote electronic voting in the elections to the State Duma held in Moscow, said Dmitry Novikov, deputy chairman of the party’s Central Committee.

“We do not recognize and do not recognize the data of electronic voting in Moscow. The party saw how the picture changed after the digital result was thrown out, ”Novikov said at a press conference (quoted by Interfax). What he means by “picture” is not completely clear – the results of online voting in Moscow have not yet been published .

Novikov said that the Communist Party of the Russian Federation will convince the country “that it is necessary to rebel and fight against digital innovations.” The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov, in turn, called on the party’s supporters “to defend the election results as the Podolsk cadets defended Moscow.”

After processing 97% of the protocols, the United Russia party leads the elections to the State Duma with 49.49% of the votes. The Communist Party of the Russian Federation took second place with a score of 19.07%. The LDPR, A Just Russia – For the Truth and New People also enter the Duma. In single-mandate constituencies, United Russia won 199 seats, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation – nine, the Socialist-Revolutionaries – eight, the Liberal Democratic Party, Rodina, the Party of Growth and the Civil Platform – one each.
