Publication of voter lists will make elections more transparent, however, is contrary to the law on protection of personal data, it is necessary to adjust the legislation, said the head of the Russian Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova.

«We wanted a list too, to publish, not only do we have observers and Commission members to get acquainted with books for the voters, but the lists to publish, including in the Internet space. But it went in conflict with the law on protection of personal data, Roskomnadzor and we were not allowed to do it,» — said Pamfilova at the meeting of the round table «Topical issues of improvement and development of electoral legislation», commenting on the proposal of the Deputy of the state Duma Oleg Nilov on the publication of voter lists.

«We must now, for example, to remove the contradiction that on the one hand to ensure this transparency, we are interested in this, it is important for us, but still that it is somehow combined with the law on protection of personal data,» she said, noting that while the legislation in this area is not adjusted, the publication of voter lists will remain impossible.
