Valery Rashkin stands on 199-mu at Lublin single-mandate constituency. The main competitor of the Communist is a well-known Russian journalist Pyotr Tolstoy, who won the primaries “United Russia”.
The blogger explained that the covert campaign will be carried out using the method of the 25th frame (quoted blogger Days.<url>). She writes that, according to the document, which was given to her by the protesters, the agitators, under the guise of the center of researches of political culture of Russia 50-70 public locations will offer passers-by to participate in the survey. Of respondents plan to ask for whom they will vote. However, the plate that they show, most of the ticks already be stamped for Rashkin. They draw the employees of the headquarters. “It is important for voters to see that Rashkin ticks most, what the others vote for Rashkin. Further, it does not matter for whom he (the voter) want to vote… If he says “Thick” or “favorite” or someone else, put a tick… And when the voter goes — we’ll add it for Rashkin that the gap was not reduced,” — said in the instructions to the agitators.
Election campaign Rashkin has repeatedly figured in scandals. Voters write letters with demands to exclude politics from the party and remove him from the election. For example, veterans in South East district of Moscow, Valery Rashkin who is running for the state Duma, wrote to the leader of Communists Gennady Zyuganov letter about the need to involve candidate accountable for immoral behavior. According to them, Rashkin conducts unacceptable and immoral campaign that has very questionable sources of funding. In addition, in July Rashkin complained to the candidate in deputies of the state Duma from the party “Communists of Russia”: Daria Mitina sent to the Central election Commission an appeal demanding to check the activities of Valery Rashkin for violation of rules of pre-election agitation.
By the way, the Communist party intends to hold a series of rallies after the Duma election. The Communists say that the application submitted to the municipality in case the elections will be unfair. As explained by Valery Rashkin, the rallies claimed on Okhotny Ryad, the estimated number of participants — 500 people. The town hall meetings have not yet agreed. And the first Deputy head of the interior Ministry of the Russian Federation Alexander Gorovoy in a speech at the meeting of the Central election Commission reported that “representatives of certain parties, including participating in the elections to the state Duma, are already planning and are calling on their supporters from 19 September to commence action related to their alleged disagreement with the counting of votes at the different polling stations”. Can it happen that the results of the “opinion poll” Rashkin will support more voters than according to the electoral Commission? In this case, the Communists will be able to appeal to the results of an alleged survey and say that the election Commission rigged the elections to encourage people to go to protest rallies. That’s not only unfair, but also a criminal offense. Of responsibility for incitement to participate in unauthorized rallies reminded, in particular, Alexander Gorovoy.
