the Number of fakes related to voting on amendments to the Constitution, just rolls, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov. According to Peskov, it is not certain that reports of proposals to vote on benches in the courtyards are true.
At the same time, as noted by Peskov, the Kremlin does not see the media reports as “the truth in the first instance”.
“In this case refuse to accept the publication of some online resources like the truth in the first instance. Unfortunately, more reason to perceive it as a lie,” – said the official representative of the Kremlin, answering the question about the format of voting. In particular, the journalists mentioned the reports of some media that the will of the citizens in places runs right on the benches in the courts, without ensuring the secrecy of the vote.
“Even so, all formats of voting that are available to the citizens, known to CEC spokesperson said. – These questions can ask the CEC, and they’ll respond. On the bench or on the bench, the main thing here – it complies with law or does not match”.
Peskov Also commented on reports of cases of coercion to vote. So, it was reported that the number of budget organizations are forced to vote their employees. In answering this question, Peskov recalled the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said that the main in the vote – its full legitimacy.
Peskov added that the Kremlin “not willing to accept impersonal information”, but are willing to accept and relay the CEC message on specific cases. Anyway, cases of coercion to vote, the official representative of the Kremlin has called unacceptable.
June 25 in an interview to “Russia 24” the question of enforcement was commented by the head of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova.
“a lot of misunderstanding about the voting outside the premises, someone out there writes with sarcasm: here, voting almost on the knee or on the bench… Colleagues, well, it’s funny, ‘ she said. Yeah, we all did for our vote, to them it was convenient and affordable. But this does not mean that our procedure is relieved.”
Pamfilova added: if a voter sees that his rights are violated he may appeal to observers who work in areas can also apply directly to the CEC.
