IT IS THE TURN OF RUSSIA TO CHECK THE WESTERN ELECTION NOW.



Russia to help organize Western elections?

Russia is ready to help Western countries to organize free and fair elections, especially the upcoming presidential elections in the U.S. and France. Vladimir Churov, Chairman of the Russian Central Election Commission says that he together with public organizations plans to conduct a  distant monitoring of the presidential campaign  in America. Lada Korotun provides more details about the novelty.


Presidential elections are taking place in several leading countries in the world in 2012. Russia elected its new president on March 4, France will conduct presidential elections in the spring, while the U.S. will hold them in November. Self-anointed liberals usually refer to the U.S. when word democracy is mentioned, but in truth, the election system in America is  replete with surprises  disentangling which is nigh impossible. Americans do not take part in the voting personally, but  select so-called electors in their states who in turn vote for a candidate of choice. In addition,  there is no legislative guarantee for  the  participation of international election monitors in many states. If it is impossible to send observers to the U.S. Russia will use the distant monitoring method  to watch the American polls, says Vladimir Churov.


“We have started working  on a system  of   distant monitoring of the  presidential election in the U.S.  This is because it is impossible to send a team of election monitors to America, since 6 states have refused  to allow monitors in. There is no centralized system of presidential election in America, but each state is allowed to conduct the election according to its system. Monitors can be sent to states which permit it, or election observers should not be sent at all. As a result of this stumbling block, we are working on a system that would allow us to observe the presidential elections in all the states in the U.S. at a distance”, Vladimir Churov said.


“Organizations have been formed in each state and they are already carrying out internal observations. In addition, we will analyze information about each state on the social service sites, as well as the sites of political parties and independent candidates. Public bodies in Russia will carry out thorough and honest monitoring, and I believe that we will discover inadequacies in the election system of our American friends”.


Vladimir Churov has suggested that America should adopt the Russian system of video-monitoring, saying that it could help the U.S. to improve the reputation of its election system, in terms of honesty and transparency. Bela Kovach, a European MP, who observed the Russian presidential election on March 4 said that in his report to the EU parliament that he would recommend the adoption of the Russian experiment.

The Central Election Commission has sealed the final results of Sunday’s presidential elections.


The winner is Vladimir Putin, with 63.6% of the vote, or 45 million votes in absolute numbers.


The Communist Gennady Ziuganov got a little over 17%, the independent candidate, billionaire businessman Mikhail Prokhorov, about 8%, the Liberal Democrat Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a little over 6%, and leader of the Just Russia party Sergey Mironov, about 4%.


The elections were held under the watchful eyes of 685 observers from 56 foreign countries. None reported irregularities in the voting process. All agreed that the elections were fair and complied with international norms.


The inauguration of the president elect is scheduled for May 7th.


Irregularities complaints ‘unfounded’ – Churov


The Central Election Commission has found all the complaints about official compulsion to take out absentee voting papers ahead of the presidential elections completely unfounded.


The announcement came from the Commission’s head Vladimir Churov.


There were 178 complaints of this kind on the voting day, and 168 came on Monday and Tuesday. The numbers are approximately the same as in earlier national elections.


Churov to soldier on


The Central Election Commission has voted 14 to 1 to reject an umpteenth motion by non-voting member Kirill Serdiukov to consider unseating its chief Vladimir Churov.


The Commission gathered in Moscow Wednesday to tally the final results of Sunday’s presidential elections.

U.S. President Barack Obama is currently putting through a telephone call to Russian Prime Minister and president-elect Vladimir Putin, media correspondents accompanying Obama in Virginia said, citing Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.


“The president called president-elect Vladimir Putin this morning. Josh did not say whether it was a call to congratulate him (following Putin's victory in Sunday’s presidential election). The White House will report on the substance of the call later,” according to a statement made available to RIA Novosti.


The media has been rife with speculation as to why Obama did not earlier congratulate Putin, whose election victory occurred five days ago. Yesterday White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said: “I would not read anything into it beyond the busy schedules of the two.”

Kissinger says Putin is a 'patriot'



Posted at 03/12/2012 7:55 AM | Updated as of 03/12/2012 7:55 AM






WASHINGTON - Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger said Sunday that Russia's president-elect Vladimir Putin is a "patriot" who could turn out to be a constructive partner with the United States on certain issues.


Kissinger said Putin, who was elected to a third term as president in an election marred by irregularities and protests against his rule, "is not anti-western."


"He is, above all, a Russian patriot who feels humiliated by the experience of the 1990s, which were in the most formative period of his career," Kissinger said in an interview with CNN, referring to the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union and the crisis that followed.


"He is very resentful of what he interprets as intervention in Russian domestic affairs and even more, of course, in what he may interpret and does interpret as some American tendencies to support his political opponents in order to encourage his overthrow," he said.


"But I believe that a dialogue is possible and on specific issues he can turn out to be a constructive partner," he said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has welcomed the United States’ decision to simplify visa formalities for Russians.


Commenting on the move, the ministry said that it would promote wider contacts between the two countries.


As of March 9, Russians who were granted U.S. visas before won’t need to undergo a visa interview if they apply for a new visa within 47 months after the previous one expired.


The decision is in the spirit of a joint statement made by Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama in Deauville last May.

In France, Socialist presidential candidate Francois Hollande plans to form a united left front ahead of the May 6 runoff.


Meanwhile, the Left Front leader Jean-Luc Melenchon who, according to a preliminary count, has 11 percent of votes, has already called on his supporters to vote for Hollande. The same was done by the Greens’  Eve Jolie, who has so far garnered about 2.5 percent of votes. Francois Bayrou, a centrist, who is in fifth place with just over 9 percent, says he needs a few days to make his choice.


A Socialist last won the French presidency in 1988 when Francois Mitterrand defeated the Gaullist leader Jacques Chirac.

Professionals from Europe and America come to work in Moscow

Highly qualified foreign experts have willingly started to arrive in the Russian capital. This is the result of the liberalization of Russian legislation, says the head of the Moscow Department of Migration Service Fyodor Karpovets in an interview with the Voice of Russia.


An increase in the number of elite foreign workers has become a recent tendency. This was promoted not only by Russia’s “soft” laws but also economic factors related to the crisis in Europe and Russia’s admission to the World Trade Organization. About 10,000 such specialists from various countries have arrived in Moscow since 2011, and this figure has consistently grown Fyodor Karpovets said.


“At present, Moscow offers preferences for these foreign workers. They get working permits up to three years and residence visas under a simplified procedure. The only condition they have to fulfill is to prove their qualifications. Another demand is that their salaries should not be less than 2 million rubles a year (about 70,000 U.S. dollars). But this requirement has been halved for scientific workers and teachers. Basically, experts arrive in Moscow from Germany, France, England, Switzerland as well as the U.S. and Israel,” Fyodor Karpovets said.


The majority of foreigners without higher education arrive in Moscow from the other CIS member countries. They are mainly working in construction, trade and service sectors, and a small number work in factories. Clearly, under globalization, no country, especially economically developed one, can manage without the involvement of additional working hands.


According to the head of the Moscow Migration Service, the attraction of foreign workers also creates several problems such as the violation of duration of stay in the capital, doing illegal work and committing crimes. However, the number of these violations has gradually declined, Fyodor Karpovets said.


He said that the violation of immigration law is a punishable crime for a foreigner, and he will have to pay a fine of about 200 U.S. dollars. If he violates for the second time he will be deported. In this case, he will be banned from Russia for five years. In fact, the number of illegal foreign workers is declining in Moscow. The reason here is registration or getting permission for work as an expert or unqualified foreign worker has been simplified.

François Hollande elected president of France 





François Hollande has been elected president of France with 51.9 per cent of the votes, according to exit polls, the first Socialist to hold the post since François Mitterrand in the 1980s. Outgoing president Nicolas Sarkozy becomes the first directly elected president to fail to be reelected for a second mandate.






Turnout was 80 per cent, up slightly from the first round last month but lower than when Sarkozy was elected in 2007.


 


In a hard-fought campaign, Sarkozy managed to narrow a gap that saw Hollande with a greater lead than he eventually won.


Hollande has told journalists that he will "govern to the left" but that he will be the president of the whole French people.
