The media learned about the possible cancellation of the single voting day


The Chairman of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova at the meeting of heads of regional electoral committees admitted the possibility of the abolition of the single voting day, or transfer to another date, according to the newspaper “Kommersant” with reference to one of the participants.

According to a source publication, at the meeting it was proposed “to return to the practice of legal restrictions on the number of ballots, which the election commissions can work together.” “When the members of the PEC have one night to process ballots and for elections to the state Duma and on elections in legislative Assembly and municipal elections, increases the likelihood of errors,” — said the source publication.

19 Dec Pamfilova reported to the President Vladimir Putin about the violations committed during the September elections to the state Duma. It also proposed to continue the practice of surveillance in the presidential election in 2018.

Earlier in December, the head of the CEC also denied the possibility of carrying out in Russia of early presidential elections. In her words, “it is not possible technically”. Then Pamfilova noted that the changes in the electoral legislation will be possible to speak after the presidential election.
