The uniform voting day has come to an end. Main thing this hour
"The quietest" elections, according to the CEC, have given surprises. Russia sums up the results of the uniform voting day. According to Russian Central Election Commission, it was one of "the quietest" in recent years. Earlier many experts spoke about predictability of results. However elections were nebezyinteresny. Who was chosen on September 9 elections of various levels have taken place in 80 territorial subjects of the Russian Federation (from 85): in 22 regions elected governors, in 16 - deputies of legislative assemblies, in 12 regions - deputies of City Councils, in seven districts there has gone a by-election to the State Duma - all about 4,7 thousand campaigns of different levels have come to the end. One more feature: these are already the second elections in 2018. Only half a year ago the country elected the president. According to many experts, this factor has influenced decrease of the activity of electorate - there is some fatigue. You shouldn't have counted on high turnout and therefore that regional and local elections are traditionally less popular, than federal. Nevertheless, according to the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation, in the Magadan, Omsk regions, than Khakassia and Yakutia the appearance was higher, than on similar vote five years ago. The predictable intrigue On preliminary results of elections United Russia wins a victory in the majority of regions. The party leader, the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called such result "quite worthy". He has also estimated the scale of a campaign and has emphasized that it was difficult because of changes in pension system. In some regions the opposition is in the lead.

Also, by preliminary results, left win elections in Zakosbraniya in the homeland of Lenin - in the Ulyanovsk region - and in Khakassia. In Zabaykalsky Krai United Russia goes almost level with LDPR (26,64% and 25,29% respectively). According to the director of Institute of selective technologies Evgeny Suchkov, the result in these regions was affected by the developed political culture and also pension reform. "It isn't weakness of United Russia, and in the general situation in the country, – Suchkov has told. – The people voted not so much for the CPRF and LDPR how many against reform. I think, the prime cause in it. In these regions the potential for protest vote was rather big. And this time the protest electorate has found a way out in vote for parliamentary parties". The head of communication holding "Minchenko Consulting" Evgeny Minchenko has also noted specifics of regions. "In Irkutsk the governor from the CPRF (Evgeny Levchenko – an editor's note), is a factor of an administrative resource. And in general the general growth of protest moods which plays into the hands of noticeable opposition parties. And regions traditionally more protest", - the expert has reported. The deputy of the State Duma Evgeny Revenko has noted that results of vote clearly demonstrate honesty and competition of elections. "Result of elections good taking into account a difficult election campaign and against the background of a difficult situation with pension reform. In all countries
