Alexander Tcherepanov cut off from votersYesterday the commission concerning the state building and local government of the Tyumen regional Duma has approved the project of cutting of one-mandatory election districts developed by regional election committee for elections of deputies coming in March in regional parliament. Thus the alternative project of communist Tcherepanov also presented at session, has been rejected. As consider in the Tyumen political circles, new cutting more all is favourable to representatives “ an United Russia “ as complicates hit in regional Duma of oppositionists. As have told „“ in a press - service of the Tyumen regional thought, the commission on state building and local government has approved the scheme of one-mandatory election districts at elections of deputies of regional Duma of the new, fourth convocation, developed by regional election committee and the regional government. Necessity for new cutting has arisen from - for introductions of the mixed election system in regional parliament on which the Tyumen parliament will be selected in March, 2007.
the new card of one-mandatory districts assumes their reduction from 25 to 17 (including three in JANAO, the others are fifty-fifty divided between HMAO and the south of the Tyumen region), and 17 more deputies will be selected under party lists. 17 districts were “ are cut “ proceeding from their norm in 140,9 thousand voters on district, and also taking into account the resolved deviations from this quantity for usual districts and sparsely populated territories. As a result, in particular, in Tyumen the number of election districts has decreased from five on last elections to three “ - the chairman of election committee of the Tyumen region Igor Halin has noted.
this moment more all has caused indignation in the leader of regional branch RKRP, deputy Alexander Tcherepanov who has put forward the, alternative variant of cutting of districts on consideration of the parliamentary commission. “ my project assumes more uniform distribution of voters: on 145 thousand persons in one-mandatory district, - communist Tcherepanov has told. - the variant approved by the commission does too big rupture in number of voters of districts - between the least and the greatest it reaches about 80 thousand persons “. In its opinion, this cutting is generated in interests of some operating deputies from “ an United Russia “ “ wishing to prolong the powers “.
But Alexander Tcherepanov`s political opponents which now is the unique opponent “ United Russia party members “ in regional parliament, notice that, offering own variant “ cuttings “ Representative RKRP tries to keep the place in a thought. The matter is that the nineteenth district of Tyumen on which he stood for regional Duma, according to the new scheme, will be abolished, and its electorate is divided between other districts. And it means that will be repeatedly selected on a post of the deputy to it more difficult. “ Tcherepanov suggested to make cutting of one-mandatory districts according to administrative districts of Tyumen, but this offer contradicts the federal and regional selective legislation as districts should be proportional on number of voters. Our cutting is maximum is convenient to voters, and all insinuations of companion Tcherepanov in the address “ an United Russia “ are unreasonable “ - the assistant to the head of the parliamentary commission, the head of executive committee of the Tyumen branch " has declared „“; an United Russia “ Ivan Kvitka.
the Project of new cutting of districts should be considered at session of the Tyumen regional thought on October, 26th.
