Preliminary results of the election of governors

As a result, according to preliminary data, Yegor Borisov is confidently in the lead - 63,15% of the votes, noticeably ahead of his main rival Ernst Berezkin - 26,72%. The Communist Party candidate Viktor Gubarev, amid the polarization of the Borisov-Berezkin campaign, was unable to attract the opposition electorate and is gaining 5,01% of the vote, LDPR nominee Gavril Parakhin - 2,42%, Vladimir Maksimov is in last place with 1,01% of the vote. The turnout for early elections in Yakutia was almost twice as high as Primorsky Krai and amounted to 61,8%.

As for campaigns for elections to legislative assemblies of regions, then, as you know, the most noticeable and competitive elections were in the Khabarovsk Territory. However, their result proved to be very successful for the authorities. According to preliminary data, only three parties enter the regional Duma - United Russia (58,65%), the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (13,65%) and the Liberal Democratic Party (12,99%). The rest of the parties did not overcome the 7% threshold: Fair Russia (4,43%), Rodina (3,47%), Communists of Russia (1,91%) and Yabloko (1,61%) ). It is worth noting that, compared to the 2010 elections, support for the ruling party increased by almost 10 points (2010 result - 47,93%), Fair Russia lost the most (last election result - 15,45%), decreased its support The Communist Party of the Russian Federation (18,93% in 2010) and the Liberal Democratic Party (13,63% in 2010). The decrease in their support was influenced by the participation of new parties: "Rodina" and "Communists of Russia" took votes primarily from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (in 2010, there were only four parliamentary parties). The winners in all 18 constituencies were nominees from the "United Russia". However, the turnout in the elections to the regional Duma was only 22,23%, a decrease in comparison with the last elections - four years ago it was 37,87%.

Other notable election campaigns in the macroregion are the elections of mayors of large cities. The most competitive was the election of the mayor of Blagoveshchensk, where eight candidates from various parties competed for the post. The winner was the vice-mayor of Blagoveshchensk, nominated by United Russia, Alexander Kozlov - he was supported by 38,62% of voters with a turnout of 27,28%. A. Kozlov's success in a one-round system was facilitated by the split of the opposition electorate into many parts. His main rivals were the communist Tatyana Rakutina, who was supported by 16,93% of voters, the LDPR candidate Ivan Abramov - 16,45% and the self-nominated candidate Sergei Levitsky (city council deputy) - 14,68%. Other candidates performed poorly: Natalya Kalinina (Yabloko, Associate Professor of the Department of Journalism, Amur State University) - 2,66%; Igor Cheglakov (“Russian Party of Pensioners for Justice”, director of LLC “Company“ MANTEH ”, deputy of the City Duma) - 2,56%; Igor Maryin (Fair Russia, General Director of Avtobaks LLC, deputy of the City Duma) - 2,53%; Alexander Abolmasov (Patriots of Russia, General Director of Stroyuniversal) - 1,5%.

The elections of the mayor of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, which were held simultaneously with the elections to the city duma, were relatively competitive. Despite internal elite contradictions, Andrei Klimov, Deputy Director for Economics and Finance at Sukhoi Aviation Holding Company, managed to win with a high result - 59,03% of the vote. The main competitor of A. Klimov was the Communist Party candidate Vadim Voevodin, who was supported by 20,87% of voters. The rest of the votes received Viktor Bocharnikov from the Liberal Democratic Party - 10,10% and self-nominated Denis Kazak - 4,52%. The turnout was 23,53%.

The elections in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk took place more calmly, where seven candidates took part in them, and the candidate of "United Russia" won the victory. Mayor Sergei Nadsadin - he was supported by 79,35% of voters out of 20,19% who came to the polls. Nobody else got a significant percentage of the votes: Alexander Moskalev from the Liberal Democratic Party, assistant to the deputy of the Regional Duma - 4,00%; Konstantin Burdyugov from Fair Russia, General Director of SakhHydro LLC - 3,49%; Svetlana Latashenko from the For Women of Russia party, housewife - 2,97%; Irina Repina from the Patriots of Russia party, chairman of the Sakhalin Initiatives non-profit partnership - 2,85%; Vladimir Goppe from the Yabloko Party, First Deputy General Director of Sakhalin Transport Investment Company LLC - 1,48%; Oleg Lopatka from the Russian National Union party, commercial director of Arkom LLC - 1,33%.

The least competitive mayoral elections were held in Anadyr, where the United Russia candidate, acting Mayor Ilya Davidenko received a record 83,08% of the vote. His technical rivals were the Liberal Democratic Party candidate, secondary school teacher Bozhena Antonyuk - 9,11% and self-nominated Victor Ishkov, deputy head of the Civil Protection and Fire Service Department of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug - 6,21%. The turnout in Anadyr was the highest of all mayoral campaigns.

Thus, the election of all mayors of large cities in the Far East allowed the heads of regions to strengthen their positions at the municipal level.

The results of municipal elections in cities and regions of the Far East led to the victory of United Russia candidates in the overwhelming majority of election campaigns. There are only two significant exceptions. The election of the head of the Skovorodinsky district of the Amur region was won by the candidate of the Liberal Democratic Party Alexei Prokhorov, a deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the region, for whom 53,94% of voters voted. The head of the district lagged behind the winner by 16,89% of the vote. Also, the head of the Leninsky district of the Jewish Autonomous Region Sergey Lavruk (67,25%), who participated in the elections as a self-nominated candidate, ran and won not from the ruling party. His first deputy and United Russia candidate Viktor Knyazev received the support of 20,33% of voters.
