The statement by one of the supporters of the blogger Alexei Navalny about the possibility repeatedly to vote on the election of the President should be the subject of investigation by law enforcement. This opinion was expressed by Deputy Chairman of the CEC Nikolai Bulaev, reports TASS on Thursday, March 15.
Bulaev believes that the intention is “a statement that a person is going to commit a crime”. “When a man speaks and says that he is ready to commit a crime, it is called surrender. Just wonder why until now, neither the Prosecutor’s office nor the Investigative Committee are not interested in this man’s actions”, — said the Deputy Chairman of the CEC.
March 13, Navalny said that one of his supporters was able to issue three statements to the voting not at the place of registration, and by place of residence. In turn, the Chairman of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova denied the possibility of multiple voting by one voter, explaining that the automated system “Elections” will take into account only the first statement.
In July of 2017 senators approved a bill providing for criminal liability for illegal issuance and receive a ballot for another voter and also for the repeated voting. The state Duma in the final reading adopted the document on July 19.
