“The Central Election Commission has formed district election
commissions in accordance with the letter and spirit of the law,” the
commission’s press service reported.
The statement says that under the law, political parties that
nominated candidates for MP are the subjects of the election process.
And such parties have the right to nominate their candidates to district
election commissions in all 225 electoral districts.
“Previously the CEC, in its proposals to legislators, filed a rule
envisaging that the subjects of the election process – political parties
– submit their candidates only to the district election commissions of a
single-member constituency, where they have their registered
candidates,” reads the document.
