MOSCOW, August 28. /TASS/. The experts of the Foundation for civil society development (Fcsd) believe that candidates on a post of the head of the region from the parties represented in the quarters of the municipal councils, should be exempt from passing the so-called municipal filter. Also, the Fund proposes to prohibit candidates for Governor to collect and submit to the electoral commissions more signatures of the team than is required for registration.

Fcsd Monday publishes the report “Elections of heads of regions in 2017: scenarios, campaigns and forecasts”, seen by TASS.
