    Russia's Communist Party to appeal decision to bring forward next parliament election

    MOSCOW, June 11. /TASS/. Parliamentary caucus of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) will vote against the bill on bringing forward the next parliamentary election to the third Sunday of September 2016 from December 2016 and will appeal the decision of the other three party caucuses in the State Duma the United Russia party, the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), and A Just Russia party to endorse the bill in the Constitution Court, Communist deputy Vadim Solovyov told TASS.

    "We're aware of the situation and that's why we'll vote against the rescheduling of the election and we're preparing an appeal with the Constitution Court, which will be filed as soon as the bill takes legal effect," he said.

    The bill was submitted to the Duma earlier on Thursday by three of the four parties having caucuses there - United Russia, the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, and A Just Russia.

    Regional elections in Russia a test in run-up to parliamentary elections

    MOSCOW, September 11. /TASS/. Analysts do not expect any major uproar at the regional and local elections that will be held on Sunday, September 13, in a number of Russian regions, although they do not rule out certain surprises.

    No one is calling into question the relatively high popularity rankings of the ruling United Russia Party and the regional governors who are going to be re-elected. But the elections are interesting, first and foremost, owing to the number of participating parties that has grown noticeably after liberalization of the election laws.

    On the whole, the expert community regards the Sunday polls as a tryout ahead of the federal parliamentary election in the autumn of 2016.

    On September 13, which is the so-called Unified Day of Voting in Russia, regional governors will be elected in 21 regions and deputies of legislative assemblies, in eleven regions. Also, municipal elections will be held in many constituent territories of the country.

    All in all, there will be 10,700 elections of various levels in 83 constituent territories of the country. As many as 55 political parties of the 74 officially registered ones.

    "The main peculiarity of these elections is found in the fact they are the last presentation of all the political forces ahead of the 2016 federal elections," Dr. Leonid Polyakov, the chief of the of the chair for general political science at the Supreme School of Economics in Moscow said. "All the participants in this election campaign interpret it much along these lines," he said.

    The latter factor offers an explanation for why it has been held at a high competitive level, Dr. Polyakov said. "Plus the availability of an ever-increasing number of political parties. As a result of a political reform that was initiated in 2011 and 2012, the number of parties is by an order of magnitude bigger than it was five years ago and this intensifies the current election campaigns."

    Still, although the number of new participants in the election race has hiked sharply and new personages and organizations are flooding the political scene, the old grand quartet of parties that have caucuses in the State Duma — the ruling United Russia and the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF), the Liberal-Democratic Party (LDPRF) and A Just Russia party that position themselves as opposition political forces — has managed to stand firm in practically all the regions, Dr. Polyakov indicated.

    "Their current position isn’t as much unproblematic as it used to be in some places, though, and they’ve come to grips with an apparently more powerful competition," he said.

    "The regional political systems will not get a new impulse of legitimacy as a result and the masses of voters will perceive these changes as only logical ones," Dr. Polyakov said.

    Although the Presidential Administration demands observance of three crucial criteria at all the elections — competitiveness, openness, and legitimacy — these principles are sometimes disregarded in the regions, said Igor Bunin, the head of the Center for Political Technologies.

    "Our Russian bureaucrat has long lost the habit of competition and is striving to get a 100% confidence of his or her victory in an election," Izvestia daily quoted him. "The bureaucrat doesn’t want any emotional disturbances. And that’s why in spite of all the moves taken by the federal authorities to bring in the elements of competition and legitimacy a number of regional red-tapers got into mishaps that had to be rectified."

    For instance, pressures officials in Omsk in western Siberia was needed to make them include a representative of the Communist Party in the competition.

    The electoral ticket of the PARNAS rightwing liberal party was registered in Kostroma on the Volga River after protracted tribulations.

    PARNAS failed to get registration in Nobosibirsk but it was allowed to nominate its members in majority precincts.

    "Big-stick methods are very handy today in making regional governors or local electoral commissions, which they control, rectify their own errors," Bunin said.

    "On the whole, the main intrigue of this election is bigger than the nationwide electoral successes of the United Russia that has fair enough rankings, but how the election will be perceived by the political class at the federal and regional level and by the ordinary voters in the final run," Dr. Mikhail Remizov, the President of the Institute of National Strategies told TASS.

    "Will the regional people of clout overuse the administrative levers and how will the federal center and the courts react to it?" he said somewhat rhetorically.

    Unexpected surprises may occur at any election but big surprises are scarcely in the cards this time, Dr. Remizov believes. "The authorities have a big resource in the form of the President’s high popularity rating, which serves as a drive engine of people’s trust in the government on the whole," he said.

    Dr. Lydia Timofeyeva, a senior staff member at the Moscow-based Presidential Academy of Government Service told TASS she did not expect any stunning surprises either.

    "The economic situation is tense but not tragic," she said. "The liberal opposition is gradually, albeit slowly, expanding its electorate."

    "And if the economic situation continues worsening, we will likely see some interesting moments during the 2016 parliamentary election," Dr. Timofeyeva said. "But their likelihood right now is practically zero."

    ^ Regarding this:

    Head of election commission: outer forces interested in failing elections in Kostroma

    MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. Head of Russia’s Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov says "outer forces" are interested in failing democratic elections in Russia’s Kostroma region.
    On Friday, a coordinator of the Open Russia oppositionist movement was detained in the city of Kostroma on the Volga River with 2 million roubles in cash, which he was supposed to spend for paying up unlawful actions on September 13, when numerous regional and local elections are to be held in 83 regions of Russia, including Kostroma.
    "Operatives of the Kostroma regional Interior department tapped a channel by which large amounts of cash money were supplied to the region," the department said in a press release. "The money was to be paid out to the activists of radical youth groups who were planning unlawful actions during the elections of the governor and deputies of the regional Duma."
    A Volkswagen Passat car was stopped on Friday night at the entrance to the city. Policemen confiscated about 2 million roubles from its driver, a 49-year-old coordinator of the Open Russia movement. The bank notes were sent for an expert study to verify their genuineness.
    "I have just received information from the interior authorities that outer forces are trying not to allow us have free, democratic elections," he said on Sunday during a meeting with heads of African diplomatic missions. "In Kostroma yesterday was detained a vehicle with a big sum of money from an organisation financed from abroad."
    He said "foreign interference with sovereign elections is banned in Russia."
    Open Russia is a movement organised at the initiative of YUKOS former CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
    On Sunday, on the day of elections throughout Russia, people living in the Kostroma region will be electing the governor, local legislators, heads of the districts.

    Why I am not surprised.

    Is Open Russia part of the banned NGO groups? Or is it banned at all? If not, it should be.

    Isn't Kostroma where Navalny was meeting with US embassy employees? If so, then there will be concentration on that area regarding the FSB and what not. There may be some "protests" but it will be very small or at least easily controlled. Paranas party will lose no matter what, but they will still call the elections "unfair" and "poorly coordinated" and they will obtain some sympathisers (probably from this "open Russia" group), and will hold protests. But the protests will be so unpopular, they will be easily quelled, as people are aware what happened to Ukraine after protests being "successful".

    Seems Paranbas party with Navalny only got 5% in Kostroma and are being a bunch of pathetic soar losers, they are gonna hold demonstrations in Moscow demanding a "change in power". So in other words, they cant get elected democratically, so they try to do it undemocratically.

    Dunno why Moscow mayor allowed it. I would have said "you failed to get even a single seat democratically. Now you want change through force? Go F yourselves. I think McDonalds is hiring. Get a new job!".

    Because 3/4 of Russian citizens don't want to participate in any anti-Putin demonstration and there is unlikely such event can happen. Cool

    Putin wins right before the battle begins.

    Somehow Zhirinovsky lost the control of his mouth, again.

    http://www.rt.com/politics/315711-lower-house-scandal-pro-putin/

    A representative of the United Popular Front has asked state prosecutors to discipline the Liberal Democratic party’s head, after he called parliamentary majority MPs thieves and accused them of fomenting anti-government riots.

    Co-chairman of the United Popular Front Vyacheslav Lysakov wrote to the Prosecutor General’s Office, saying Vladimir Zhirinovsky’s statements at Wednesday’s session of the State Duma is a violation and should be punished. Talking to Kommersant daily, Lysakov emphasized the letter was his personal initiative and hadn’t been coordinated with the United Russia party.

    The scandalous comments came at the beginning of Wednesday’s State Duma session. The Liberal Democrats’ boss was delivering a speech about the recent elections of the head of the Amur Region. Zhirinovskiy suggested that United Russia’s victory wasn’t fair and said he would ask the president not to receive the victor in the Kremlin. When he noticed United Russia MP Irina Rodnina wasn’t really listening, he became agitated and started shouting. Zhirinovskiy called her immoral and even suggested the whole United Russia party was a bunch of “criminals” preparing a “maidan” or anti-government coup in Russia.

    Zhirinovsky is infamous for his foul mouth and bad temper and I belive these accusation are groundless and just the result of an anger due to his lost in the election.

    Dunno if it put it in a proper topic... well RT put this article in the tab of "Russian politics".

    http://www.rt.com/politics/316276-government-rejects-bill-to-introduce/

    Government rejects bill to introduce private military contractors in Russia - report

    The Russian cabinet has rejected a bill regulating the work of private military companies because of legal weaknesses and security fears, Izvestia reports, citing the author of the document.

    The main sponsor of the bill, MP Gennady Nosovko of the center-left party Fair Russia was disappointed at its rejection. However, he has promised to rework the draft and submit it again in November. He added that he did not agree with many of the government’s conclusions regarding their review of his bill, but refused to go into detail.

    He mentioned that if the reworked piece of legislation was rejected again, he would bypass the government and send it directly to the State Duma before the end of 2015.

    “Russia needs private military companies that would protect its interests in the Arctic and in the Middle East,” he told reporters.

    He also mentioned that the use of private military companies would increase competitiveness, while also providing jobs for military and law enforcement veterans.

    Nosovko agreed that strong government control was essential for private military contractors to function successfully. However, he noted that the government had not decided which agency or ministry would be responsible for keeping them in check, if the bill was signed into law.

    Izvestia quoted an unnamed source in one of Russia’s “power agencies” who said the government had rejected the bill because a section concerning state regulation lacked detail.

    “The main question is which organization, the Defense Ministry or the Federal Security Service of the Interior Ministry, would control tens thousands of “Rambos” to make sure that they would not turn their arms against the state itself,” the source said.

    The newspaper added that according to its information, the Defense Ministry and the Federal Security Service strongly opposed the very idea of private military companies in Russia because such organizations could potentially become free of state control and could even be used against the government. However, both the Defense Ministry and the FSB have declined to comment officially on the issue.

    This is not the first time that lawmakers have tried to pass legislation, which would see the introduction of military contractors in Russia.

    In July, two lawmakers from the parliamentary majority caucus United Russia said they had prepared a bill that would grant private military companies broad rights, but also give control over them to the Defense Ministry, which would use them as an immediate response to various threats.

    While Russia does not have private military companies, private security firms are abundant. This includes independent contractors and security branches of major corporations. According to the Interior Ministry’s statistics, there are currently over 60,000 such companies in the country with about 700,000 employees.

    Those favoring the introduction of private military contractors in Russia say that if the legislation is eventually passed, it could create over 500,000 jobs.

    The Reds are actually trying to push it further... or this MP is just trying to get attention ?

    http://www.rt.com/politics/316786-communists-to-contest-united-russias/

    The chief lawyer of the Communist Party faction in the State Duma said that his comrades would soon oppose United Russia’s long-term domination in parliament and seek changes that would not allow any party to get a majority of seats.

    “We are preparing a quite unique appeal to the Constitutional Court concerning the monopoly of one party in the State Duma,” MP Vadim Solovyov said in an interview with TASS news agency.

    He went on to explain that the Constitution provides that there should be no monopoly on power in Russia, including the monopoly on state power and ideology. Communists intend to use this principle and propose a major amendment to the law that would not allow one party to get more than half of all parliamentary seats. He noted that the same law might introduce quotas for parliamentary representation for one political party, for example, of 47 percent.

    “Constant holding of over 50 percent of parliamentary seats [by one party] is a trait of a totalitarian state,” Solovyov said.

    The chief lawyer of the Communist Party faction in the State Duma said that his comrades would soon oppose United Russia’s long-term domination in parliament and seek changes that would not allow any party to get a majority of seats.

    “We are preparing a quite unique appeal to the Constitutional Court concerning the monopoly of one party in the State Duma,” MP Vadim Solovyov said in an interview with TASS news agency.

    He went on to explain that the Constitution provides that there should be no monopoly on power in Russia, including the monopoly on state power and ideology. Communists intend to use this principle and propose a major amendment to the law that would not allow one party to get more than half of all parliamentary seats. He noted that the same law might introduce quotas for parliamentary representation for one political party, for example, of 47 percent.

    “Constant holding of over 50 percent of parliamentary seats [by one party] is a trait of a totalitarian state,” Solovyov said.

    What if US foreign aid (CIA operated NGOs) decided to abandon the Liberals and switch their support for the Communists to destabilize Russia? After all, the Communists have a higher chance of securing votes than Navalny
