Shortcomings of State Duma elections criticised by the OSCE

The Moscow Times picks up on a report issued by the Organisation of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on shortcomings in the December 4 elections in Russia.

The report highlights “indications of ballot box-stuffing” and the clear favouring of the ruling United Russia party.

it corroborates numerous complaints from Russian citizens and opposition parties from throughout Russia about the falsification of the results and also notes that actual political competition was limited, as a number of parties were denied the right to register.
