16:01 27/02/2019

MOSCOW, February 27 (RAPSI) – A bill envisaging a test remote voting via electronic communications during the elections to the Moscow City Parliament has been introduced to the lower house of the Russian Parliament, according to Alexander Brod, a member of the Presidential Council of Human Rights.

The test voting is to be conducted in only one city district, the statement reads. The remote voting will require changes and development of public control over the elections, Brod said.

Earlier, the Central Election Commission (CEC) proposed to ease the procedure governing the elections of municipal deputies. As noted by Maxim Grigoryev, a member of the Civic Chamber, the measure will enable small political parties and those outside the Parliament to take a more active stand in the political life in Russia. CEC, Grigoriev pointed out, has also plans to improve the procedures on the participation of observers in the elections.
