MOSCOW - Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) Chairman Vladimir Churov has promised to announce the official results of the Dec. 4 parliamentary election before Dec. 10. "We plan to do so before Dec. 10," Churov told Interfax on Tuesday.

It means that the official results of the State Duma election could be announced much earlier than Dec. 19, the latest possible date set by the electoral preparations, conduct and vote counting calendar.

Churov said earlier that the Central Election Commission was not going to delay the official announcement of the election results.

"Probably, summing up the official results will not take us long," he said.
