The Communist Party confirmed the participation of Andriy Ishchenko in the new election of the governor of Primorye

The candidate from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Andrey Ischenko, will continue his struggle for the post of governor of Primorsky Krai. This was confirmed at his meeting with Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov. He said he plans to invite the president of Russia to appoint Ischenko temporarily acting governor of Primorye.

As the Interfax, in the CPRF the proposal for appointment is argued by the fact that there is every reason for taking into account Ishchenko's speech at the elections in the first round. Early elections were held in September in two rounds. As a result of the second candidate from the Communist Party won 48,06% of the vote, and the incumbent governor Andrei Tarasenko 49,55% of votes. The candidates accused each other of fraud and falsification. Later the Territorial Electoral Commission canceled the election results. Repeated voting must be held within three months.

As told TASS the secretary of the Primorsky Territory election commission, Natalia Kamaeva, holding a new election of the head of Primorye will cost the region about 290 million rubles. Of these, 250 million will go to pay for the work of members of precinct election commissions, and the rest - for printed materials and other material security. Additional funding will be required for video surveillance.
