Gudkov criticizes elections, but itself would gain 3%


Experts consider an appearance in Moscow normal, and elections - legitimate. In Moscow polling precincts were closed. At 18:00 the appearance at elections has made 24%. What has coincided with forecasts of political scientists and sociologists. The Center of the political analysis has emphasized that an appearance low to call incorrect. "In a normal situation – stable political development – the level of politicization of citizens isn't really high and in general corresponds to the level of active consumers of news according to the social and political agenda (15–20% in a limit). Thus, the low (superlow) appearance should be considered result lower than this level. Everything that above – a normal appearance" — experts of the Center have noted. For comparison, in 2013 when among candidates there was a blogger Alexei Navalny, 32,03% of voters have come to polling precincts (an appearance at 21:00, this year vote was prolonged till 22:00). On the current elections Dmitry Gudkov has tried to take Navalny's place. But he couldn't pass "the municipal filter" — to collect signatures of mundep. Experts don't exclude that the politician will try to present vote results in the blogs and social networks as illegal, though left record in the voting day that has come and has voted for all at once, having damaged thereby the bulletin. "In all sections", - he has written. Gudkov's behavior quite predictable though has under itself no reasons, the member of the Russian Association of Political Consultants (RAPC), the political strategist Nikolay Kremlev is sure. "Laws in Moscow are observed. The Moscow authorities for years of management have learned to bypass all holes and traps. Elections — quite to legitimate, though with predictable result. As for the municipal filter, it not the Russian invention. He exists in a number of the European countries. In France, for example. I don't see in him what - that awful. But I consider that now excessively tight restriction. It is possible to lower it". The director of the Center of the political analysis Pavel Danilin has emphasized that you shouldn't determine legitimacy of elections by the number of the people who have come to sites. "The low appearance isn't a legitimacy correlate. Sobyanin for Muscovites is absolutely legitimate as absence at elections of many residents is connected in the majority with confidence in Sobyanin's victory and the fact that residents consider elections fair" — the expert has noted. Besides, in the Center of the political analysis have noted that the opposition couldn't propose the single candidate. It became one more factor which has affected activity of voters. "Also the fact that a part of oppositional citizens are positive to transformations in Moscow is considered, and, it is about oppositional citizens of both the right, and left beliefs" — political scientists have emphasized. But even, if to assume that the same Gudkov would be registered the candidate on elections, his result would hardly exceed 3%, Nikolay Kremlev considers. "Extremely low Gudkov would have a result — within 2–3%. The candidate of the CPRF Kumin would gather much more. To the person
