Legal Falsifications

Legal Falsifications
Leonid Kirichenko 07.12.2007

Elections haven't ended yet but present authority already could be congratulated on victory. In laws on elections the norms guaranteeing its victory in all subsequent elections are incorporated.


Chairman of Central Electoral Commission Churov educates voters about laws with pleasure but he does it rather specific. He repeatedly confused voters but never received refutations.


The first disinformation - that it's possible for ordinary voter to look through the lists of voters and makes sure that nobody has voted instead of him. In reality following the law all these lists with ballots should be sealed up and couldn't be shown to anyone without special decision of the court.


The second disinformation is an advice to wishing to vote against all - to cross out the bulletin. They say crossed out ballot becomes void. In reality it is equivalent to pure ballot and after easy movement of a feather turns to the ballot submitted for the party which victory freely (or on compulsion) the members of the electoral commission will promote. I shall remind that before it Churov ingenuously advised instead of voting against all to drop pure (blank) ballot into the box.


The third Churov's statement is a pearl which exposing essence Churov himself has not understood -it's a statement, that only each thousand voter witnessed falsification. It's not so little. 70 thousand people on 70 million of voters. If (with some strain) to assume that falsifications are distributed on the country in regular intervals and that only one undesirable witness was present at each falsification on a polling station (meanwhile in fact falsification are not shown on TV and there is no publicity) it means that falsifications were admitted in average in 70 thousand polling districts, on two thirds. All in all there are 95 thousand of them, as you know. It's possible that there were also falsifications in other districts, but they were not noticed. That's a nice arithmetic of fairness of the elections!


And addition of ballots itself does not considered as infringement by the law. Even if there were ten times more ballots than the list number of voters, the law doesn't see any bases for cancelling of the results of voting on the site. It's also is not an infringement if the member of the electoral commission will not take away, will leave absentee ballot to the voter. And it's possible to vote again and again using this absentee ballot. The law does not provide any responsibility for additional circulation of false absentee ballots and repeated voting on them. In fact every false absentee ballot is changed on a valid ballot. And during 12 hours of voting the bus filled with "multiple voters" with a stock of false absentee ballots is capable to go round not one ten polling districts. Such multiple voting cannot be noticed either by observers on the site, or fair members of the electoral commission.


It is written in the law that the court has no obligation too cancel the results of voting, results of elections at any falsifications. It is written: "can cancel". And it can not. Both variants will be equally lawful. Naturally, from two lawful decisions politically expedient will be chosen...


Local electoral commissions have the right after leaving of the observers (with copies of the report received) to make new report with corrected and improved results of voting under a pretext of finding out of mistakes. The law considers this corrected report the right one. The law allows not to produce any proofs. According to the law commission and the court decide by themselves to open or not sealed up packages with ballots. The law allows to ignore protests of the observers with "erroneous" results of voting. It is interesting that fair member of commission protesting against falsification accomplished before his eyes has no right to address in court. Article 259 of the Code of Civil Procedure has taken care of it. Only electoral commissions as plural can address in court on the facts of falsifications accomplished by the electoral commissions.


All above-stated showed how it is possible to receive results of elections necessary to the authorities, remaining within the limits of laws. But it is even more possible to do unpunishedly leaving these frameworks. Impunity is guaranteed by special norm about incompetence of members of the electoral commissions.


In the law about guarantees of suffrages of citizens (article 29) there is a remarkable norm - a member of the electoral commission couldn't be brought to trial either for falsifications, or for any other crimes, it couldn't even be fined without the consent of the General public prosecutor or the public prosecutor of the subject of federation. It is clear that if falsifications were done in politically correct direction, there wouldn't be consent of those public prosecutors.


Having such remarkable electoral laws developed by the Central Electoral Commission to name the Central Electoral Commission - the ministry of elections - means offensively belittle its role. It's more correctly to name it the ministry of POLITICALLY CORRECT RESULTS of elections. It's impossible to name what is occurring elections. It's restraining of authority allocated by secondary electoral attributes (in the form of ballots, candidates and commissions) which can be named elections only because of ignorance or duty-bound.


Now it is possible to dream of honesty of calculation of voices, we shall be soon obliged to trust in this honesty. On reception in the Kremlin president Putin shared his confidence with foreign ambassadors that elections of 2007 will be "transparent and open as much as possible", "without organizational defects, failures". It will be enough to the ordinary citizen if the nearest police station will share with him the confidence in honesty of the last elections. And the doubt in this honesty, probably, will soon become obvious extremism, with all ensuing consequences.


Many mass-media were bypassed with joyful news that a device for fair calculation of voices invented by a citizen from Rostov Kondrashev received in Bruxelles "Grand Prix". It excludes an opportunity of falsification of results of voting. Unfortunately, nobody understood that the Central Electoral Commission counted up numbers in reports and not the balls in the device. As the balls and numbers are connected - see above.


To the voters who are forced to vote for one of the parties with photographic acknowledgement of the necessary tick in the ballots and open passport it is possible to advise to represent a tick using not a pen but moistened slice of a dark thread. After photographing a thread is possible to clean and put a tick in the ballot at own choice.
