New elections of the head of Primorye must pass 16 or 23 December, told reporters in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the Deputy Plenipotentiary of the RF President in the far Eastern Federal district Grigory Kuranov.

«By law, three months for new elections… 16 or December 23. The next elections, to take part can be anyone,» said Kuranov.

The electoral Commission of Primorye last week on the recommendation of the CEC of Russia has recognized the results of elections of the head region is invalid. The former acting head of the region Andriy Tarasenko declared that considers correct the decision. The candidate from the Communist party Andrei Ishchenko said that he would contest the results in three areas — in Ussuriysk, Artyom and Nakhodka. He noted that the statements of claim prepared, and some of them have been filed. Date of the next elections is not appointed yet, but, as expected, the deputies can approve it to mid-October

In the course of summing up of the election candidates were alternating the lead, after processing 100% of ballots Tarasenko received from 49.55% of the votes, while Ishchenko is 48,06%. Candidates filed complaints about the violations, after which the CEC has sent in Primorye representatives to assess the situation and advised the electoral Commission of the region to recognize the election results invalid, since the analysis of complaints revealed a gross interference in the election campaign with use of administrative resources.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday accepted the resignation Tarasenko was appointed acting head of the region Oleg Kozhemyako, head to this Sakhalin oblast.

Kuranov noted that, despite the «Federal trends», all the regions voted differently, and cited the example of Magadan oblast, where the «Varyag» and ex-mayor of Nizhny Tagil voted by 82% of voters.

«That is, he coped with the task and fulfilled the aspirations of the people… Those regions where this has not happened — I guess the current government have failed to respond to the demands of the population to show that will do,» said Kuranov.
