Speaking at a round table devoted to a single day of voting, Pamfilova, well, to quote RIA “Novosti”, said that although the situation with the filter and needs to change, however, restrictions for registration of candidates in one form or another must be maintained.

“There may be different options – explained his position the head of the CEC. – It is possible to meet only parliamentary parties can be extended to those parties that have representation, you can remove this rule, to members for only one candidate had signed up for.”

Overall, however, the filter need not have caused Pamfilova doubt, as it, in its opinion, is to separate the real parts from “spoilers and political killers”.

Recall that the municipal filter will play a crucial role in the upcoming 2018 election of mayor: at the moment, to overcome it will be only the candidate from “United Russia”. While saying about his mayoral ambitions politician Dmitry Gudkov says that he intends to collect the voices of municipal deputies for his nomination after carrying out with them negotiations.

Earlier Pamfilova has declared the need to abolish the municipal filter “in the present form,” at or lower its threshold, or to allow municipal deputies to leave your signature for any number of candidates, not just one.
