March 10, 2011

Dmitry Medvedev signed Federal Law On Amendments to Federal Law On Basic Guarantees of Electoral Rights and the Rights of the Citizens of the Russian Federation to Participate in a Referendum.

The Federal law is designed to synchronise the organisation of election campaigns and to improve the voters’ electoral activity. The Federal Law also aims at removing unnecessary duplication of election commissions’ work and at minimising budgetary expenditures for the preparation and holding of elections at all levels of the legislative (representative) bodies of state power.
