Moscow. September 22. INTERFAX.RU — Association of Russian non-governmental organizations for the protection of electoral rights “Civil control” received a signal about violation of the candidate from LDPR Sergey Furgala of the prohibition of campaigning on the “day of silence” on the eve of the second round of elections of the Governor of the Khabarovsk territory, said the co-Chairman of the Association, a member of the HRC Alexander Brod.


“This morning (MSK — if) has received information that in Khabarovsk distributed campaign materials of the candidate from LDPR in the form of printed materials, leaflets that are placed on the entrances, mailboxes of houses. The city goes vehicles with campaign materials. Also shows videos of the candidate on advertising boards and on the Internet,” said Ford on Saturday, “Interfax”.

“In this regard, in order to carry out the verification of compliance with legislation, we have prepared an appeal to the Chairman of the regional election Commission and the Prosecutor of the region. We believe that the signals about what is happening — not a good sign on the eve of election day. If such methods are tested in a “day of silence”, I would assume that the polling day staff (candidate — if) may use such methods,” — said the Agency interlocutor.

According to him, “Civil control” will forgive the election Commission of the Khabarovsk territory and the regional Prosecutor to react quickly and to stop illegal campaigning.

Brod reported that on the day of voting, the Association will be in contact continuously with public organizations in different localities and to observe the conduct of voting and counting of votes.
