On August 31, the chairmen of 17 precinct election commissions of the Moskovsky district of St. Petersburg wrote letters of resignation. And a few days before that they were approved as members of the precinct commissions of the Krasnoselsky district. Opposition candidates associate the migration of officials with the fact that the Moskovsky district was controlled by the head of the United Russia faction in the Legislative Assembly, Alexander Teterdinko. At first, he planned to be elected to the Legislative Assembly in this area, but then he was nominated to the State Duma in the Krasnoselsky district.
A colleague of opposition deputy Maxim Reznik, municipal deputy Olga Galkina, who is elected from the “Fair Russia” in the 21st constituency in the Moscow region, wrote a complaint to the Central Election Commission about these personnel reshuffles. She told The Insider about the situation in St. Petersburg before the elections:
In the 21st constituency, Oleksandr Teterdinko originally planned to go and it was for himself that he formed the precinct election commissions and TECs. Since it so happened that Teterdinko moved to another constituency and for other elections (he went to the State Duma in the 212nd constituency in the Krasnoselsky district), he took with him to the territory he needed and a selected team of heads of election commissions.
This is just another bell, which suggests that serious falsifications are being prepared using, in particular, the technology of ballot stuffing. KOIBs (a complex for processing ballots, an electronic device for counting votes) can reduce the likelihood of such falsifications, but they are not planned to be installed in the 212nd constituency. Earlier, Teterdinko did some work so that there were no KOIBs in the 21st district. He is trying to win not in the process of fair elections, but as best he can, by means of falsifications. These are my assumptions, but they are confirmed by various facts in our city.
We considered it right to focus Ella Alexandrovna’s attention on this episode. Recently, there have been enough episodes in St. Petersburg to consider the results of the upcoming elections to the State Duma and the legislative assembly in St. Petersburg illegitimate. I hope that Ella Alexandrovna will have enough resources to somehow prevent potential forgers.
After reading Galkina’s complaint, the head of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, scolded the St. Petersburg electoral commission: “How could this get past the city electoral commission? We need to send representatives of the Prosecutor General to you. ” The deputy head of the CEC Nikolai Bulaev added that the St. Petersburg electoral commission does not control the situation, otherwise it would have already canceled the decision to dismiss colleagues from the Krasnoselsky district.
