Over 120,000 ballots cast in Moscow legislative primaries

MOSCOW. June 8 (Interfax) - Over 120,000 Muscovites had cast ballots by 2 p.m. in the primaries to select candidates who will run in the Moscow legislative elections, a member of the counting board of the My Moscow civil initiative, the organizer of the primaries, told journalists on Sunday.

"The My Moscow civil initiative's primaries are well underway with over 120,000 ballots cast by 2 p.m., which is more than expected," Gennady Kamyshnikov said.

He said that over 1,000 observers are monitoring the polls and that more than 400,000 electors had been registered.

"No official complaints have arrived. If complaints arrive, we will consider them," he said.

Nezavisimaya Gazeta editor-in-chief and a member of the My Moscow Organizing Committee Konstantin Remchukov said that of the 120,000, 65,000 are electors and the rest are independent Muscovites.

"After the vote is over we will get a picture of a better quality than what pollsters normally get," Remchukov said.

He said that the My Moscow Organizing Committee on June 3 made the decision that not only electors, but all citizens holding a passport registered in Moscow, will have the right to participate in the vote.

Another member of the My Moscow Organizing Committee, businessman Mikhail Kusnirovich, urged Muscovites to make it to the polls before 10 p.m. and cast ballots at one of the 500 polling stations.

"The figure we have obtained - over 120,000 voters who cast ballots on this hot but comfortable day - exceeds manifold the figure obtained in a two-day long online initiative known to me. I hope those who were spending the weekend outside Moscow will cast votes before 10 p.m.," Kusnirovich said.

The programs proposed by the candidates "will be the best for the Muscovites," he also said.

Over 1,000 candidates, among them political party representatives and independent candidates, are running to fill 45 seats in the Moscow legislature.
