The head of the CEC of Russia, Ella Pamfilova said that the municipal filter in the elections can be reduced to 5%, she told about it in interview to the newspaper «Kommersant».

«The rate of the municipal filter in its current form, it is necessary to cancel… there Must be a system that organizes the political process, but does not kill the competition… Maybe the experts agree, and lawmakers will hear them, because there are different options. Can we propose to remove the high threshold of 10% and make it the most low — 5% or even lower. Maybe you need to MPs, one signature set, and how many want it,» she said.

Earlier, the CEC head also expressed hope that the municipal filter in the elections were more democratic. In her opinion, the cancellation filter of the question, as it is required to remove the «crooks and fake parties», but the filter options need to be reviewed so that they are «not an obstacle to major competitors».

Earlier with criticism of the municipal filter was made by experts of Committee of civil initiatives (CGI), this mechanism is, according to them, severely reduces the number and range of real candidates. Candidates need to collect a certain percentage of signatures (in different regions from 5% to 10%), which should be a percentage of the total number of deputies of representative bodies of municipal areas and city districts and elected at elections of heads of municipal areas and city districts (from 5% to 10%). The signatures of the last candidate must receive not less than three quarters of municipal areas and urban districts of the region. In the OIG believe that, «trekhsloynoy», combined with the prohibition sign for two candidates at a time, usually is the main problem during the registration of opposition candidates.
