Less than seven candidates pretend to one deputy mandate


Less than seven candidates pretend to one deputy mandate for today, ITAR-TASS reports. The chairman of the Russian Central Election Committee Vladimir Churov has reported at the meeting with the heads of embassies and consulates of Russian Federation that the federal lists include only about 3050 candidates or about seven candidates per one deputy mandate.

This is the lowest level of competition for the State Duma chairs for all last State Duma elections. In 2007 this index was equal to 13 people per one mandate. More than 16 people fell on one mandate in 2003 but that time 26 political parties participated in the elections. But in opinion of the chairman the drop of the number of candidates per one mandate doesn't mean the drop of competitiveness: very intense political struggle is already running and the pre-election agitation just starts activating.
