Quotas for activists of the Russian popular front in the parliamentary elections of 2016 will not, everything will depend on how people respect and demand this or that party, said the first Deputy head of presidential administration Vyacheslav Volodin.
The VILLAGE ANOSINO (Moscow region), 18 Nov. Any “order” for activists of the Russian popular front (onf) in party bodies in the upcoming elections to the state Duma in 2016 out of the question, said the first Deputy head of presidential administration Vyacheslav Volodin.
Seminar-meeting with the co-chairs of the onf regional headquarters of the popular front and heads of the regional Executive committees held from 18 to 20 November. The representatives of the regional headquarters of the movement from all regions will discuss the current practice of “front” in the regions and the interaction of regotdelenija with activists, experts and the regulatory authorities.
Previously co-Chairman of the Central headquarters of the popular front Alexander Brechalov said that the organization will support its activists who will gather to participate in the elections to the state Duma in 2016, but it remains solely their initiative — they will go as single-mandate deputies.
“There can be no question of any quota, the order, here it all depends on how much a person respect, demanded by this or that party”, — said Volodin, responding to a question from the representative of the Kaliningrad branch of the onf on the participation of “veterans” on elections in the state Duma “on majority districts and party lists”, as well as the format of cooperation with political parties.
In February 2014, President Vladimir Putin signed a law on the return to the mixed system of elections to the state Duma, which provides for the election of deputies by party lists and in single member constituencies. In single-member constituencies would be elected half the deputies, the other half by party lists. According to the law, the scheme of districts formed for 10 years.
Earlier, the state Duma adopted in the first reading the bill providing for reconciliation of the single voting day in Russia with the elections to the lower house of Parliament.
