author: Marina Shumilova

82 candidates from seven political parties will compete for the mandates at the forthcoming State Duma elections in Bashkortostan. At that 13 candidates are younger than 30, the chairman of the central election commission RB Khaidar Valeev reported during the “straight line” with voters.

In a whole 3050 candidates will take part in the State Duma elections of the sixth convocation in Russia. This number is registered now by the Russian Central Election Committee in the federal lists of the political parties. Therefore less than seven candidates pretend to one deputy mandate and this is the lowest number of the competitors for one State Duma chair for all last parliamentary elections.
