A second round of voting on elections of the head of Khakassia, of course, was a sensation, but he has a very real premise — the inhabitants of the region mentally fatigued from the permanent leadership of Viktor Zimin and therefore protested, according to experts.

In the elections on Sunday the acting head of Khakassia Victor Zimin («United Russia») gained of 32.42% of the vote, losing more than 10% to the candidate from the Communist party Valentin Konovalov scored 44,81%.

«The result certainly looks sensational, but it was background. Chapters who have been working in the region, often accumulating high anti-rating, to which is added the moral fatigue of people from the tenure of the leader,» — says the Siberian scientist Alexander Chernyavsky. In his opinion, the whole campaign Zimin made «ragged» impression.

«There were many expensive political technology of chips without a common ideological denominator. All of this took full advantage of the Communist party, which in the absence of on the distance of the candidate from the liberal democratic party was able to gather most of the protest electorate under the red banners. I think Zimin in the second round will be very hard. Usually the opposition ahead of the government candidate in the second round,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

Khakass political scientist, Director of the Agency of information communications Alexander Bortnikov, in turn, believes that reaching the second round along with the current head of the Zimin candidate of the Communist party Konovalov got this result because of the circumstances.

«In my personal, business and other qualities, strictly speaking, he (Konovalov — ed.) was not supposed to score such a result Here… didn’t work out his personal dignity, and it just bounced back a protest vote. That is, voted not so much for this particular young man, and how much total negativity» — said Bortnikov.

The electoral Commission of the Republic of Khakassia at the meeting on Tuesday will take a decision on conducting the second round of gubernatorial elections in the region and is scheduled to be held on 23 September, said during a live broadcast to the CEC head of the electoral Commission of the Republic Alexander Tumanin. He noted that in voting will take part the two candidates with the most votes, if they go on the corresponding statement about their consent to participate in the second round.
