Duma elections for now, this thread could be used for presidential election later. Anyways, the polls are closed, 22.00 Moscow time 19,5% of the votes have been counted. So far (the limit is 7%): United Russia - 63,5% (Putin's party, the most popular and powerful party) CPRF - 11,5% (The communist party) LDPR - 10% (Liberal - democratic party, not a very liberal or democratic party of radical militarists and other stupid people with a populist clown for a leader) Fair Russia - 7% (Um, I think this is the Kremlin's party in attempt to grab the vote of the left) Other that just might catch up: Agrarian party - 2,5% (I got nuthin') Others have received 1% or less and should go hide in a corner in shame. Some violations have been reported, up to 10,000 by the communists, who are always against everything, ever, so take that as you will. I'm waiting for some by the western observers. 99% percent of Checheniya has voted according to Kadyrov, which is the fishiest thing so far. Violations are going to be indubitably, but I think it's absolutely retarded of the Un.Rus.ians to do so, as they have the most competent and popular person and federal channels as their support , they would easily get 55%, the violations are only hurting their reputation, but eh. Will Putin be the Prime Minister in charge of the EdRo and the Duma after the presidential elections? Discuss. In before: Who'd ever suspect that an ex-KGB agent put in charge of a country would stunt democracy and reinstate a military state?
