The Central election Commission of Russia believes that the wording of the question that the initiative group created by the candidate in mayors of Moscow from “just Russia” Ilya Sviridov, proposes to the national referendum against the increase of retirement age, meets the requirements of the law.

In one region, two parallel initiatives with similar questionnaires approved may not be, the electoral Commission must register the group first submitted the documents.

In early July, the Communist party in Moscow made the first attempt to initiate a referendum against increasing the retirement age. The Communists have proposed to submit to referendum the question “do you Agree that in Russia the age of eligibility for appointment of insurance old-age pension must not be increased?”. The CEC considered that the wording of the question allows for multiple interpretations and may lead people astray, and the Moscow city election Commission denied registration to subgroups on the basis of this conclusion. The Communist party, after consultation with the CEC Chairperson Ella Pamfilova rephrase the question of a referendum and approved at the meeting of the new initiative sub-group on 7 August.
