Krasnodar, 12 September – Yug Times. On Sunday, September 9, thousands of Kuban residents took part in the regional election.
Altogether, there were 64 municipal campaigns – from voting for small village and town mayors to election of city deputies. All parties representatives, independent candidates and public activists that monitored the course of the voting unanimously confirmed that the election occurred without any violations, and the attendance was even higher than in some neighbouring regions.
The elections were held in 30 municipalities of the Krasnodar region. The voters elected mayors of Akhtyrskaya, Psebai and Chernomorsky, deputies in Gelendzhik, the Kavkazsky, Belorechencsky and Yikhoretsk districts, and the cities of Krasnodar and Novorossiysk.
The results of the elections turned out to be as expected. In fact, they preserved the ratio of the parliamentary parties existing in previous convocations – with the exception that a number of independent candidates and representatives of ‘small’ parties were also elected.
In Gelendzhik, 102 candidates ran for 30 seats in 17 constituencies. Two seats were given to the Communist Party, one to the Liberal Democrats and one to the Growth Party, and three to independent candidates. All the rest seats were won by the United Russia.
In the Kavkazsky district, 55 candidates ran for 30 seats. The winners were two independent candidates, the only member of the Cossack Party (and an ex United Russia member) Yaroslav Matchak, and three candidates representing national opposition parties. Most of the seats, however, were also given to the United Russia.
The elected mayor of Akhtyrskaya is Anatoli Skuratov from the United Russia. Anna Komarova, also from the ruling party, was elected mayor of Psebai. In Chernomorsky, the mayor’s post was won by Denis Levagin – also from the United Russia.
