And they immediately calmed down. No, - they say - do not drain at all. It’s just that you don’t have to spend money on things that have not solved anything in Russia in recent years ... Why drive a printing press in vain and actively sponsor adherents of white ribbon with freshly printed bills, if the legislative power in the Russian Federation is represented by parliament directly as ... - they say, - unless, for the already issued grants, yell a little, and there will be - prepare, they say, forces for another election cycle - the presidential one. This is where, they say, you will have to move your tongues, limbs, and fifth points.
Before proceeding to the consideration of the reaction with “those who disagree with anything”, it is worthwhile to present the official (so far preliminary) election results to the State Duma - well, all of a sudden, someone still does not know.
So, after counting more than 99,5% of the votes, United Russia leads, with party lists receiving 54,19% of the vote. The second, third and fourth place in the Communist Party, the Liberal Democratic Party and the CP, respectively. Their results are 13,34%, 13,14% and 6,23%. It is these parties with a turnout of about 48% and are held in the State Duma of the next convocation.
In addition to representatives of these parties, the Duma "will open the doors" for two members of other parties: one from the Rodina party (Alexei Zhuravlev), one from the Civic Platform (Rifat Shaikhutdinov). There is one self-promoted (Vladislav Reznik). If we talk about the "under the backrest" distribution, then here the absolute record for the EP - 343 seats from 450 in the lower house of parliament. This, by the way, is the constitutional majority. To make decisions of any nature, it is possible not to agree with any of the opponents at all. What to agree on with this “overwhelming minority”? .. About this, however, a little later.
So far - to the statements that the losers made (talking about the unprecedented in the Duma). And with an eye on the comparison. For example, from Yavlinsky (“Yabloko” gained about 2%):
It is necessary to change the president, the government, the State Duma. Peaceful, legal, constitutional. But without this, there is no way forward.
"Party of pensioners for justice" (gained about 1,3%):
In the initial starting conditions there were a lot of factors that prevented the start of a full-fledged election campaign in a timely manner. It seemed that nothing could be done under these conditions. Many have counted on this. But, despite all the difficulties and problems, we were able to rally, confidently enter the election campaign and leave a noticeable mark on it.
And this (ahead - quote "Vedomosti") for comparison, from the head of PARNAS, Mr. Kasyanov, whose party scored "as much" 0,73% of the votes (after all, it's not on the Internet with anonymizers to vote):
The chances of a constitutional peaceful change of power have plummeted.
A short statement, but what! .. Mikhail Kasyanov, in contrast to the same Grigory Yavlinsky, makes it clear that if his party realizes any chance to change the government, it will not be either peaceful or constitutional. Or will the ex-prime minister and part-time author of the sanction lists transferred to the “partners” after this declare that his words have been taken out of context?
It is extremely clear that those people who were ready for unconstitutional and non-peaceful "change of power" since the days of the Swamp, and who then did not justify the hopes of their supervisors, will now do everything to take revenge. EVERYTHING is really EVERYTHING, not stopping at nothing, as it already was in a whole series of states in which the “Western democracy” was sown according to the well-known scenario. By the way, before the presidential elections, by the way, there is not as much time as it may seem. And it is hardly worth thinking that the “partners” are not preparing for this event in Russia, just as they were not preparing for this year’s parliamentary elections. There (in 2018) is a completely different alignment, completely different rates. Work is underway, and Mr. Kasyanov is broadcasting this in clear text.
Well, with these, everything is clear. But what about the above constitutional majority? Is he going to rest on his laurels with a record result, or will he begin work that will nullify all the attempts indicated by the head of Parnassus and his puppeteers?
And here several possible scenarios are drawn.
Scenario One: a party that has already de jure turned into not just a parliamentary majority party, but a constitutional majority party (in fact, the “one person” ruling party) may decide that the case has been done for the next five years and you can sleep until the next election, stating once again about high-profile goals in the style of the "may decrees."
Such a scenario is possible, although it is difficult to realize for the largest Russian party, with all the possible desire of its individual representatives. And it’s difficult to realize because the party received votes not only from those who really support it, but also from those who voted, as they say, in spite of the enemy - in spite of sanctions, restrictions, non-recognition and other sticks in Russian wheels. And if the former are quite ready to forgive (or rather just to pay no attention) to the EP everything, including, to put it mildly, an unintelligible fight against corruption and economic impotence, then the latter will try not to let them relax. The logic is simple and more than reasonable: you got a vote, so work! - the second time to cover up the inconsistency of individual “specialists” with shouts about sanctions and intrigues of NATO and the American administration is unlikely to succeed, because the memory of the people is not as short as I would like the individual “specialists” again.
Scenario Two: the party of the constitutional majority (by itself or with a hint) can begin to turn the screws, to bronze like the CPSU in the worst years, to try and continue to retain its total advantage. If so, then this option is extremely dangerous for the EP itself. After all, it is possible to spin so that the thread will “fly off”, and this is only to the advantage of such personalities as the above-mentioned Mr. Kasyanov with his statements about “reducing the chances of a constitutional and peaceful change of power.” Yes, and it is unlikely that people will agree to the twisting. The president himself said: not 37, they say, a year ... And the people believe the president.
scenario third. Even if it shows utopia, but with the current political scenario, it is still time to turn utopia into reality. Otherwise - ah ... or the seams. The scenario is that the parliamentary majority should become not just a parliamentary majority, but also a real platform representing the interests of the majority of Russians. Millions of citizens, not baggy units ... Previously, somehow it didn’t work out so well, they can now take themselves in hand and read about their obligations to voters.
I wrote and think: do you believe in it yourself? .. In principle, I can not believe it. But here, after all, the matter of actual survival and development of the whole country is at stake. And if everything goes along the path of the late capeses option “ideas for the benefit of the people unanimously supported, but the country can also be ruined” or falling asleep to songs about an outstanding result, then we don’t need such hockey. Took to go "on the ice" - give all your best, without searching switchman! And there is no desire - so at least read historical chronicles - there it is extremely intelligibly written about it.
PS I decided to make it a bit more specific so that there would be no misunderstandings. At one time, the CPSU had an amazing program, outstanding plans, bright leaders, stunning support, but ... Over time, the party was destroyed: a) isolation from the people, b) zabronzovely issued for "healthy conservatism", c) a set of their own all, including frank rogues and representatives of the 5 column, d) indifference of the majority of the top to the fate of the country. I would like with all my heart to hope that Russia will not have to worry about such destructive factors again.
