On rural souls. Part 1.
In October in five regions for the first time after a long break will pass elections of governors. But will pass already by new rules with the special filter in the form of signatures of municipal deputies which candidates are obliged to collect. About victory of operating governor Sergey Mitin on prajmeriz " an United Russia " " " informed on July, 2nd. Behind how the new law in the Novgorod region is understood, the correspondent " watched; " Maxim IVANOV.
behind signatures we go to Volotovsky area of area with Olga Efimovoj, the deputy of regional Duma and the candidate from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, on " Gazelles " the pasted over symbolics of communists and hammered by packs of newspapers.
in district Volota we are met by the secretary of a district committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Maria Sheltemova, the low pensioner with short violet hair. At it in hands the list munitsipalov: 27 deputies of rural settlements and 14 a regional thought. The active worker already has had time to find out that free signatures practically does not remain. We search for Irina Dobrynin it the regional deputy and the vice-president of the Volotovsky consumer society (rajpo). We find it in local " to acceptance " representing a stone shed where local residents can hand over the goods, for example berries. On doors the quotation hangs: a blueberry 70 rbl.
In the separate room forced by empty jars, sit Irina Dobrynin. On questions of the correspondent " " " And why do not sign? And the governor have supported? " the intonement sounds:
Yes that today the such! Anything I will not tell, I out of a policy!
Irina Dobrynin was considered unique in area " a supporter of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation ". We come back to a building rajpo. One more regional deputy and the chairman of a consumer society Antonina Abdurahmanova There sits.
it is necessary to Olga Efimovoj to obtain the permit to extend agitmaterialy in rural little shops which submit rajpo, and to learn just in case about signatures. A paper for propaganda of Abdurahmanova accepts without questions, and here it has already given the signature.
to Mitin, of course, the deputy speaks and explains the motives. I the self-promoted worker, but I the party member " an United Russia ".
We go to the next village where there lives the deputy of Slavitinsky settlement Tatyana Semenova. The deputy we find on a lawn before the house between the broken tractor, a new tractor and " Oka " from which the song in style a chanson is distributed: " Reliably the zone has buried!. " it rises from a laying where packed up garlic. To it on heels Yefimov`s candidate walks on a grass.
and all of us for Mitin, the deputy speaks and explains a political position. I - that from " United Russia ".
it is more interesting to It to learn, not " dragged " leah Maria Gerasimovna garlic, but also Tatyana Semenova does not refuse the political help, stretches to the communist a tube, call:
Svetochka, you at us the deputy of settlement, gave nobody the signature still? Gave? To Mitin? Well it is fine, thanks...
one more deputy, Ekaterina Aleksandrova, lives in the same village, through road. She explains: the head of settlement of all collected, has told that deputies can vote only for for whom she has told. To argue became nobody. As to pay the state duty on the signature 100 rbl. it was not necessary to deputies.
Last deputy to whom we have time to reach, works in a rural little shop in Jazvino. Valentina Danilovoj`s shop is already closed, she has had time to change clothes and has left to work in a shed. Asks the photographer not to remove hesitates of a green dressing gown.
Well will not shoot! Maria Sheltemova asks.
Not, not, the deputy murmurs. I with them work.
to the correspondent " " then explain that " oblpotrebsojuz " the Novgorod regional consumer society, the United Russia party member, the deputy of regional Duma Stanislav Sadalsky, from here and such vertical heads.
our candidate the worthy person, the communist presses.
the worthy person, and to us to work with them. To us that from this power that from that...
local deputies, seemingly, do not know that federal legislators the new filter have strengthened local government and their influence on the regional power. It seems, absolutely to the contrary.
On the way back communists carry on rural shops the newspaper " Truth ". " Newspapers have resolved, explains Sheltemova to sellers. To heat them it is not necessary, it is necessary to read at first ". For a six-hour trip any signature is not collected, the plan is not executed.
" these elections represent refined system of purpose. The power is urged to submit to the governor who can always block the financial channel " the first secretary obkoma assures the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Valery Gajdym. " On everyone there is a pressure through work. Will dismiss there is no place to be arranged, Olga Yefimov marks. the Novgorod region has passed the most rigid law: we do not have self-promoted workers both the maximum lath 10 % of signatures. Without the agreement with United Russia party members of signatures not to receive ". However, speaking about the governor, the candidate from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation names it not on a surname, and by name: " Sergey Gerasimovich ". When at the initial stage of campaign by Efimovoj offered fast vitse - the governor, she, speaks, has refused. Though its prospects to reach elections are not quite clear. Potential podpisantov at the Communist Party of the Russian Federation was 64. And from a minimum in 173 signatures which it is necessary to present to electoral committee till August, 29th, while on hands at Olga Efimovoj only 17.
Spravorossy have put forward in governors of the head of branch, vitse - the speaker of regional Duma Alexey Afanaseva. On Tuesday petition directly at party office has begun. While the candidate tells about how there is a process, subscribes six persons from the Novgorod area (city vicinities).
I in Novgorod also work, the first therefore has subscribed, Evgenie Kljukas from village Podberezki tells.
the pair of deputies which as speak, were selected from " comes to subscribe also; an United Russia ". But names ask not to write down. By calculations spravorossov, at them 52 deputies. But Alexey Afanasev considers 47: in one of areas of party the deputy, and at it three more relatives and #150 has been excluded; too deputies. " In Novgorod one deputy at us has already subscribed for Mitin " he tells. Gorduma, according to oppositionists, has with its full complement subscribed under the party in power recommendation. Till Monday spravoross wants to collect signatures by own strength, then to bring the first results.
if will not suffice, the curator at level of State Duma Chepa and the chairman of the party (Nikolay Levichev will be connected. " " ). Will carry on Perhaps negotiations any, he speaks.
at other candidates petition process goes in accelerated tempo.
we the first have declared the candidate Victor Mihajlove, have got into gear with municipal deputies, the sports young man with a wide chain on a neck, the assistant to the co-ordinator of regional branch of LDPR Konstantin Simonov tells. As he said, other nominees were considered also, but have decided to stop on local shots. Here to be defined it was easier: the age qualification in 30 years in branch there passed only lawyer Victor Mihajlov and Konstantin Simonov.
but as at me higher education is not present also it to me it is not necessary, there was Mihajlov, the Party member explains.
as he said, LDPR has collected already half of necessary signatures. At last Konstantin Simonov gives the collection of verses and eau de toilette " Zhirinovsky ".
the promoted worker speaks About half of collected signatures from " also; Patriots of Russia " Nikolay Zaharov. He since 2008 headed a city Small Vishera and has left fast akkurat under elections. We meet the candidate near regional administration. As he said, it carried documents in electoral committee: the commission, administration and regional Duma are in one building.
independent deputies in region of an order of 170 persons (188 persons. " " ). Us, " Patriots of Russia " Many deputies know. We and signatures of other parties collect, he tells.
thus Nikolay Zaharov directly says that is not going to build campaign on Sergey Mitin`s critic: " by the Governor it has been much made in area it is indisputable ". And it it is impossible to pull down.
non-party Novgorod journalist Elena Mihajlova has proposed a nominee one week ago. It has supported " the Just cause ". According to madam Mihajlovoj, public work has ceased to suffice it and now she wants to receive new " tools " for influence on the power. She does not speak about the signatures, but notices that United Russia party members do not give the signature of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation or " Fair Russia " it is not so much on command from above, how much from - for " old contradictions ". And to the young woman from party with constructive offers the relation another, is explained by Elena Mihajlova. She asks to note: " No contradictions with the candidate for governors at me are present, except one. In 21 - m a century consideration of interests of region through a prism of party membership an out-of-date manner ".
Under data " " at madam Mihajlovoj quite certain function to involve 3 - 4 % of voices " a creative class ".
Vitse - the governor on the internal policy, the first zamsekretarja regional political council " an United Russia " Alexey Kostyuks explains " " that communists are guilty in the problems: when in 2010 on municipal elections it was replaced with 1,5 thousand mandates, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation has exposed not enough candidates and the few have defeated. And United Russia party members took 83 %.
We in June have booked audit of our resources, and the candidate for frameworks prajmeriz has gone round all 22 areas where met deputies. At us 50 persons of active workers who have begun at once petition, Mister Kostyuks tells about scales of work.
as he said, in support of governor Mitin it is already collected more than 200 signatures, and in plans to collect more than 300. The Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the United Russia party member speaks, work on places did not conduct, besides has proposed the candidate with recognition on region in 5 - 7 %. Therefore it not undertakes to estimate prospect of madam Efimovoj. But other candidates " go in areas, convince deputies " also get support, marks vitse - the governor.
