In total in area it is registered 1300 thousand voters, but as has informed yesterday on special a press - conferences the chairman of regional election committee Vladimir Zhuravlyov, the total appearance has made only 30,65 % from total number. That, however, in regional election committee consider as success: It on one and a half percent more than on last elections in bodies of municipal self-education in 2005.

Candidates from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation managed 53 mandates, Fair Russia - 51, LDPR - 13. Definitive results of elections will be announced within the next few days, but seriously the statistics will not change. Probably only that quantity of mandates in a coin box an United Russia slightly will increase. As confirms vitse - the governor of Leningrad region Alexander Kuznetsov, many of those who went on elections self-promotion, also are members of this party ( an United Russia . - ) And, most likely, the figure will increase as a result . By the way, the highest indicators at United Russia party members in Vyborg (89,7 %), Boksitogorsk (86,1 %) and Lodejnopolsky (80 %) areas.

United Russia party members and on by-election in Legislative Assembly of Leningrad region on Volosovsky district have won (the member " became the deputy; an United Russia were vitse - the governor of the region, and nowadays the assistant to the general director of Open Society Gazpromregiongaz Ivan Grigoriev who has typed almost 49 % of votes), and on direct elections of heads of municipal unions in three rural settlements of Leningrad region: United Russia party member Pavel Dmitrys became head MO Vyskatsky rural settlement of Slantsevsky area, and the Old Polish rural settlement was headed by its party fellow Anatoly Goljaka.

And here by head MO Koltushsky rural settlement self-promoted worker Edward Chirko who already held earlier this post has been selected and last years was repeatedly involved on various criminal cases. Also the former head of Toksovsky settlement Vasily Pahomov who has been recognised yesterday by regional court by guilty of attempt at bribe reception (about its destiny more in detail on p. 15 has got to number of the elite).

it was not possible to become the municipal deputy to the leader of trade union of factory of Ford Alexey Etmanovu (instead of it in municipal council of a city of Vsevolozhsk has been selected the head physician of Vsevolozhsk regional hospital), and from its six associates standing from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, to become the deputy it was possible only to one - to Vladimir Lesiku. As elections have unsuccessfully terminated and for a command of employees of the device of the representative under human rights of Petersburg - only one of seven candidates became the municipal deputy in Rahe.

We can assert that nothing an occasion will protest results of elections .
