On Wednesday, the Verkh-Isetskiy district court of Yekaterinburg declared invalid the diploma about additional higher education Ilya Gaffner, United Russia, which is September 18 for the second time in a row elected to the Sverdlovsk legislative Assembly. Now he will be able to follow my own advice – “eat less and exercise”, so how is he going to take the parliamentary mandate.
Gaffner claimed that he has two. First, on a speciality “the engineer,” he allegedly received in URGTU. And the second, on specialty “Manager”, based on the first – in commercial Ural-Siberian Institute of business. But the court saw no evidence that a politician was graduated from the state UNIVERSITY. URGTU argues that the diploma did not give him. And accordingly, is illegal and getting a second education on the basis of non-existent first higher). Therefore, the Prosecutor’s office of Oktyabrsky district of Yekaterinburg achieved that within 5 days after the entry into force of the judgment Gaffner returned his diploma back where he got it. However, United Russia will appeal the court’s decision, as it believes that it became a continuation of the persecution waged against him by his opponents during the race.
Wide fame Gaffner received in January 2015, when advised complaining of the poverty of the inhabitants of Yekaterinburg eat less and exercise. After this policy was even included in the Top 5 favorite memes of the Russians in 2015-2016. With him in the ranking was the Minister of foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov with his “Morons…”, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with “no Money but you keep” and the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, “who does not understand, he will understand.”
Apparently, this popularity is not pleased “United Russia”, and in the last election Haffner had to go to the regional Parliament as an independent candidate. However, even in this situation he was able to gain the 28,61% of the vote, beating his nearest rival from the Communist party Vyacheslav Wegner 8%.
“Gaffner can say anything, but the court decision is irrelevant to the race. I do not like him, well, let him not eat. I, in turn, will not claim parliamentary mandate, as still passed to the legislative Assembly on the list of the Communist party. Second, he lied and led people astray, but submitted to the electoral Commission the documents, he pointed out that he has only secondary education. Because of this, there is no reason to deprive him of his seat in Parliament, although I would like to see that justice is done to the end, because we know how he was elected. For example, near the places for voting people handing out vodka, so they voted for Gaffney. We have people who are willing to testify in court. Now we collect all the information we have, and we’ll see what happens”, – told the “MK” Wegner.
