Political predictability with small "stylistic" amendments. Georgy Bovt's comment


In Russia there has taken place the Uniform voting day. In four regions the second round will define the governor. In Irkutsk and in Ulyanovsk areas elections to local parliament are won by communists, in Transbaikalia a formal victory for the United Russia, but upon party in minority Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail has passed Fomichev/TASS In Russia the Uniform voting day. In 22 regions chose leaders, in sixteen — regional parliaments. Results are commented by Georgy Bovt. Elections in general have taken place in regions without excesses, except for the uncoordinated protest actions against pension reform which are carried out in a number of the cities by Navalny's supporters, besides, that he is under arrest. The appearance traditionally was higher in the east and the country South. For example, in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area she has made about 60%. About the same voters have come in Kemerovo to choose Aman Tuleyev's successor. Elections have been noted by the minimum number of scandals. Ella Pamfilova managed to increase overall performance of the CEC so that process of will took place without excess noise and dust. In general the appearance was lower, than at presidential elections in the spring that is quite clear. Superefforts on her price markup by means of an administrative resource in many regions weren't noted. It was important to ruling party to mobilize the "nuclear electorate". Where it didn't work well, "plan B" has been realized, and representatives of "parliamentary opposition" have got a victory that doesn't threaten foundations of present system of the power in any way. And if protest vote has been strengthened by discontent with pension reform, then parliamentary opposition Loyalists damped a negative, besides that, in fact, act as informal sparring partners in carrying out this reform. Many blame for a low appearance so-called lack of alternative. On it the head of the CEC Ella Pamfilova has reminded that 40 political parties and four public associations have taken part in elections. Perhaps, voters just don't see an alternative in these 40 parties or don't believe that the people advancing oppositional platforms in practice intend and capable to keep the promises. At us have more got used to trust authorities. About oppositionists it is scornfully accepted to say that they are advertized on problems. For them vote more often not because support their and their platforms specifically, and in protest at authorities in power of this or that level. Someone doesn't see in elections of a way to achieve desirable changes. Still someone argues that the most pressing problems are solved not at the regional level, and in Moscow. And the vast majority has voted for Putin in the spring. Some predicted that problems in economy can affect drama results of United Russia. However electoral revolution as in some other country against the background of so large-scale pension reform, it didn't happen. There were only some mini-sensations. United Russia has conceded on elections to Legislative Assembly in Transbaikalia where it was overtaken by LDPR and the CPRF, and in the Irkutsk region where the first I have come
