Elections 2020: all familiar faces

74

September 13 in the Russian Federation - Unified voting day. In 20 constituent entities of the Russian Federation, governors will be elected, in 11 - the legislative bodies of the region. In this regard, it is worth familiarizing yourself with the alignment of political forces in regional elections.


Undoubtedly, the leading political force in the regional elections this time is the party of power - United Russia. The main reason is that even in those regions where the governors do not belong to the lists of this party, it possesses colossal administrative resources and related opportunities. This picture took shape over a decade and a half.

Of course, the elections will not go without the participation of the parliamentary opposition - the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Fair Russia, and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia. They all nominate candidates in the vast majority of regions.

Four "new items" for September 2020 elections


According to many experts, one of the main distinguishing features of the current election campaign is the active participation of extra-parliamentary parties in it. However, it is more likely not about the radical opposition, but about the same "systemists", only not represented in the State Duma. For example, in a number of regions, the Patriots of Russia, the Party of Rosta, and Rodina are running for governor. Veterans of the Russian liberal opposition - the Yabloko party - will participate in the elections.

Interestingly, new political parties that have emerged recently will also debut in regional elections. For example, this is the Green Alternative, an environmental party founded in 2019 by an environmental activist and member of the Public Chamber of the Moscow Region Ruslan Khvostov.


Vasya Lozhkin significantly increased the recognition of the new ecological party


The informal leader of the party is considered to be Alexei Kudelin, better known as "Vasya Lozhkin", a Russian artist and musician. His participation will significantly increase the recognition of the party, especially among representatives of young people and the intelligentsia.

The New People party appeared on March 1, 2020 and immediately actively declared itself by creating regional branches. The party leaders are entrepreneurs Alexei Nechaev and Alexander Davankov. Nechaev is the president of a well-known cosmetic company, and, apparently, felt that it was time to get into politics ... "New people" express their adherence to the ideals of capitalism and consider themselves representatives of small business and self-employed.

The Direct Democracy Party is also a political freshman: it was also created in 2020, and it has already acquired more than 40 regional branches. Like the Green Alternative and the New People party, she also has a remarkable leader - one of the creators of the famous online game with tanks Vyacheslav Makarov. As they say, all familiar faces ...


Writer and politician Zakhar Prilepin


Finally, for the first time, the For the Truth party is going to the elections - a new association positioning itself as the party of Russian patriots, whose face is the famous writer Zakhar Prilepin. The emergence of this party, apparently, is an expression of the existing demand in society for renewing the patriotic camp, which has traditionally been associated with the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and Rodina, but now these parties are gradually losing their positions, especially among the young electorate.

In addition to Zakhar Prilepin, there is one more "headliner" in the game - Ivan Okhlobystin.

The Kremlin will prefer proven candidates


At the same time, critical political analysts accuse the listed political organizations of creating the appearance of competition in the elections on behalf of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation. After all, many voters have already stopped going to elections, explaining this by the fact that "there is no one to choose from."

Indeed, over the past 10 years, new parties have not appeared on the political scene in the country that could compete with the old ones, which contributed to the growth of Russians' disappointment in the existing political system, in elections, especially at the regional level. Therefore, the emergence of new parties with rather bright (and in the media plan) leaders was just as impossible, by the way, and it is possible that, having made their debut in regional elections, they will then take part in the elections to the State Duma. This is a kind of bride and a test of the pen for those parties that were formed before the regional elections and just for them.

However, there is no doubt that the "old people" in the person of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, "Fair Russia" and the Liberal Democratic Party will not be left without seats in regional legislative assemblies. As practice shows, they are guaranteed several seats in the parliament of almost every region, but with the posts of governors it is more and more difficult - the Kremlin prefers to see the usual and obedient figures from United Russia in the governor's chairs. And as soon as a representative of another party takes the chair, a wave of materials begins about "non-refurbished hospitals", now about the criminal past.

The example of the Khabarovsk governor Sergei Furgal in Moscow will probably be remembered for a long time. But, on the other hand, two or three governor's seats in a number of regions may well yield to representatives of opposition parties, choosing the most suitable figures for this. Which also happened.

      As you can tell, there are exceptions. But for Russia, the elections are not a farce.
      We have created a specific methodology and adopted rules under which not the choice of the people wins (if the people's candidate can get into the lists of candidates), but the right of the administration.
      And from such obvious lies and forgeries, which took place in the election campaigns of the past years, any person can have a feeling of hopelessness.
      Even now, when the number of parties and "partekas" exceeds the reasonable limit, people simply ignore this circus with wrinkled clowns and clowns. And the naphthalene opposition parties have repeatedly shown their capabilities and preferences ...
      I do not believe a single word of this Pamfilova ... She is simply tired of dragging the state collar, and the charter of the party in power will not let it be thrown off.
      It is a waste of time to discuss people who are striving for power without having behind them not only the slightest degree of serious business, not to mention achievements, but even popularity and recognition.

              And not only in Kostroma, the CPRF supports Navalny. The head of the current CPRF faction in the Moscow City Duma, the grandson of the party leader Leonid Zyuganov, in a conversation with Kommersant, said that the Communists support Navalny's Smart Vote as an idea. “As an opportunity to consolidate around one candidate, this is a very promising idea,” the politician believes. When asked by Kommersant whether the Communist Party of the Russian Federation itself will now support Alexei Navalny, Leonid Zyuganov replied that this is a difficult question, he, for example, “But everything is the means are good. Our goal is to gather a strong faction from different deputies. We support what contributes to this. "

      Yes you, my friend, are an extremist smile The next logical step in your reasoning is to propose to Mr Putin and United Russia to give up power, since it is legally based on elections. And this is a farce
      P / S In essence, your statement is incorrect.
      1. The institution of elections is not at all the same, depending on the type of society and its socio-economic structure, its meaning, meaning and formal procedures change.
      2) Even within the framework of a bourgeois dictatorship, as in the Russian Federation, when, at first glance, elections are really pure farce, they matter, because the regime in the Russian Federation cannot go over to a direct, unrestrained dictatorship, it is forced to hold elections and directly depends on them.

        Ancient Jews and Greeks fought for the right to vote. The first kings of Israel, as well as generals in Ancient Greece, were elected by voting.
        The tradition of free elections was brought to England during the Anglo-Saxon conquests about 1500 years ago. And the right to vote was transferred to America by the first colonialists. But this is not an ideal system for choosing rulers.
        In terms of elections, I am not an extremist, but rather a monarchist. I did not recognize the elections, and I do not recognize it, this is quackery.
        Few will agree with me, but this is my opinion. Everyone estimates it differently.

        the regime in the Russian Federation cannot, it is forced to hold elections and directly depends on them.

        This is simply the legitimization of power. No more. The government does not change, but it wants to confirm its legitimacy. She needs this to be on an equal footing with partners. If she doesn't get the majority, then if she holds out, the rest will deal with her differently.

    The bourgeois will lay down with bones - and will not give power to any truly popular, which means - to the communist (NOT the Communist Party !!!) party .. Yes, this will not even be allowed before the elections. Therefore - all these games in the bourgeois type of democracy have nothing to do with us. For this is a dumb and shameless farce. Power can be returned to the people only through a socialist revolution ..

        But we have built this society not to infringe on personal freedom, but to make the human person feel truly free. We built it for real personal freedom, freedom without quotes. It is difficult for me to imagine what "personal freedom" can be for an unemployed who walks hungry and does not find the use of his labor. Real freedom exists only where exploitation has been abolished, where there is no oppression of some people by others, where there is no unemployment and poverty, where a person does not tremble because tomorrow he may lose his job, home, bread. Only in such a society is real, and not paper, personal and any other freedom possible.

      In general, I agree with you, however, local councils can and should be promoted and voted for their candidates. Now the same Communist Party of the Russian Federation works well with independent candidates on the ground. As for a truly people's party, not only will they not be allowed before the elections, no one will register them. Most of the party's program, which today would meet the aspirations of the people, would fall under the article of extremism.

            Yet, within the framework of the genocide regime of the Russian people established by Yeltsin and continued by Putin, human losses have long exceeded the number of losses in the Second World War and many times exceeded the losses during the VOSR (by the way, bloodless) and civil war.
            And these losses without a socialist revolution, while maintaining the current regime, will continue until the complete liquidation of Russia.

                Quite the opposite is true. The revolution, let me remind you, was, in general, practically bloodless, people died in the framework of the civil war, which is not at all identical with the revolution. But even if we take the civil war, then the absolute number of its victims, these are also not those who were killed at the fronts, shot, etc. It is, in the same way, those who died from abnormal living conditions - primarily from malnutrition and epidemics. And this, let me remind you in the conditions of 1918-1921, when there were no antibiotics, there was an extremely primitive level of technology, and so on. Now these victims could easily have been avoided.
                So it is simply impossible to beat the level of genocide created by Yeltsin-Putin in modern society. The Civil War is just kindergarten compared to them. Only Hitler can compete here.

                By the way, blocking the opportunity to change this situation, you willy-nilly become an accomplice in the liquidation of Russia and the Russian people.

                  Then in Russia there were millions of peasant farms, and now there are two dozen agro-industrial complexes, WHICH WILL MANDATORY BURN. And what are you going to eat?
                  And if then armored trains fought, then what is now worth using nuclear weapons in a civil war?

                  Or do you still think that a REAL SOCIALIST (that is, with a change in the ruling class) revolution can be limited to a coup d'etat without subsequent civilian life and devastation? Why would? Describe the mechanism. So far, I see only sheer balabolism.

                    5) The mechanism of the social revolution - either first, the victory of the Maidan - the collapse - the subsequent consolidation. Or - the seizure of power in the regions and a campaign against Moscow, a la the Pugachev uprising, but successful. Better the second option.

        Nobody wants blood in their right mind. In the February, as well as in the October Revolution, Nicholas II, with his camarilla, is guilty first of all. It was they who, with their "excellent management", brought the state "to the handle." Of course, the current authorities are still far from this "great martyr and martyr", but they are trying very hard.

        And what else would they do with the revolutionaries today ...

        No, the revolution is certainly not needed, because the situation in the country and in the world is not the same. But if the people in a single impulse tore off their fifths from the stools and went to the polling stations on September 13 to vote against the representatives from the United Russia party, then it would already be a good return flop of "gratitude", at least for the fact that United Russia the majority in the Duma signed all Russians to work up to 60 (w) and 65 (m) years. There and for other tricks of this party, with tariffs and fines, "grateful" splash will be typed. But no, most of those who have the right to vote "proudly grumbling" will sit out at the TV's homes, chatting along the way that everything has risen in price again, that there is no attention and respect for the hard worker, that oligarchs are buying yachts and villas, etc. standard chatter. You have to go to the polls.

            Colleague, this is confirmed not only by those present at this discussion, but also by the press, which notes that there are reports from everywhere about the pressure of administrators of various levels on their subordinates. Like, go and vote for United Russia, don't you dare vote for the opposition.
            Let me remind you that such actions of the administration fall under Article 141 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "Obstruction of the exercise of electoral rights" - up to five years in prison. As well as Article 17 of the Law on Civil Service, which prohibits the use of the advantages of official position for election campaigning. If such facts are discovered, an appeal to the prosecutor's office should be immediately followed with the subsequent initiation of a criminal case.
            Question: were there any requests?
            Answer: it was not.
            Crying and moaning.
            Opposition: if we lose, we will take our supporters to the streets. And now? If there are real facts that fall under the above articles? Small intestine. And then let them try to wave their fists after the fight. Well, somewhere they will wave, to the point ...
            And what is significant? Shouts about administrative pressure are like agitation for a party of screamers, implying "We are not like that, we are honest!" It turns out that this is the only list of achievements of the newly-minted applicants? Sickly.

            Those who argue stupidly want Edro to win, and the people, as they polished their "five-points", polished further, and then sadly moaned about the fact that nothing was changing. Today I have already gone, despite the rain and cool weather, and voted against Edr. As the saying goes, what he could do, and so he recouped their candidates for the pension reform, for there are still no other opportunities. At least before my children and grandchildren, my conscience is clear, what my grandfather could do, so helped.

      Indeed, the people have a demand for parties other than United Russia, which has seriously discredited itself at all levels of representation. And every year the demand is growing. But only strong, passionate swimmers who want to build a political career in line with popular expectations can push themselves up on the wave of this request.
      If the political power understands, if its instinct of self-preservation works, then this time it must meet the people halfway and not drown the swimmers. The country desperately needs two large political parties with different domestic policies. If this happens, the people will rise from hibernation.
      This is difficult for the authorities. After all, you will have to negotiate with party members of different affiliations. However, it's time to tie up with laziness, otherwise we won't pick up the pace of development. Stop slowing down!
      But are there swimmers?

          Chatter, dull and useless, exists when one of the parties is overwhelmingly outnumbered, capable of blocking a useful initiative by its disciplined voting. For example, in the State Duma, such is the EP.
          The Communist Party, the DDPR and the Socialist Revolutionaries can shout from the rostrum as much initiative and useful for the country, their decision on the issue will be blocked by the votes of the United Russia Party and fucked. What we see in reality.
          If in the State Duma, along with United Russia, another party, equal in size to United Russia, takes its place, then in order to push their own opinion through the majority in the voting, both United Russia and the new party will have to enter into a bloc with the Communists, Liberal Democrats and Socialist-Revolutionaries, and negotiate with them. This will allow the Communists, Liberal Democrats and Socialist-Revolutionaries, as payment for participation in the voting bloc, to demand the adoption and some of their demands, undoubtedly useful. After all, until now none of the legislative initiatives of these parties has passed. And in the block at the expense of bargaining at least something, but it will pass.
          Exactly the same picture is observed at the lower representative levels.
          Yes, people need new faces, but not in the EP.
          In this party, all persons seem to be of the same nationality, there are no individuals there, no matter how puffed up. Discipline obliges.

              Yes, our people are suppressed! He is still depressed by what happened to him. He still has a post-traumatic syndrome - one from which one cannot get out without help. Military psychologists work with the military who have gone through the war. And that is purely theoretical. I don't know if we have such a thing.
              And the population? Who does it? Our birth rate is falling rapidly - isn't that why? We have the highest male suicide rate in the world!
              And the authorities, which were supposed to become our psychotherapist, since they have already grabbed the steering wheel of the steam locomotive, does nothing spiritually uplifting, showing traits of depression - the same as ours!
              There is a tribe, young, unfamiliar, so make way for it, put it next to it, as a second driver, show which buttons to press and just restrain the impulses inadequate for youth ... And nothing! Some "Leaders of Russia", exactly copying the features of the selfish vigor of the current deputies from the United Russia, as if drugs were swallowed. And what to expect from them? Well-fed belly stroking with a transition to deep sleep in the deputy's chair? Take Lozhkin, whom I respect, or Prilepin. They will sleep! Allegedly, they are not criminal, therefore they can become deputies. Or governors?

    The fact that elections within the framework of the bourgeois dictatorship in the Russian Federation are controlled is understandable and self-evident. However, even in this case, there are a couple of curious points -
    1) In most regions, there is no chance for the hated United Russia to keep the majority, so the question is, what will win, a smart vote against the United Russia or falsification in the three-day voting for the United Russia?
    2) Will there be "unsanctioned" rallies of protest against falsifications?
    Khabarovsk has well shown how important it is for the regime to maintain the power of United Russia in the regions against the background of the rapid impoverishment of people.

    The authors of the animated series South Park spoke well about the elections in one of their series. An election is a choice between a bucket enema and a manure sandwich. There is a choice, but nobody likes it.
    As in any capitalist system, the above plebescite is not a choice between cadidates, but the legitimization of the current government.
    To date, the EP requires another legitimization. For her sake, everything is started. Their closest competitor is the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, and so that they would not get an advantage, God forbid, several clowns like the emmo-Marxist Prilepin were introduced.

    There's nothing you can do! And the United Russia will not allow real competition to be made out of the banal logic of preserving power. And there will be no competition, therefore, nothing will change.
    And competition could only exist before United Russia became a monopolist. All other factions are for show, they are worthless.

      And in this regard, thoughts involuntarily return to the phenomenon of Khabarovsk. What - the people did not know, did not understand and did not guess that Furgal was a criminal? Yes, ask anyone in our village whether Furgal is a criminal, whether our own mayor is criminal, whether the head of the village council is dirty in crime, you will get a one-note answer: "Yes!"
      The era turned active people into criminals, others - into his passive help. And, not being able to resist his entrepreneurial nature, each active person got himself involved in illegal activities to one degree or another. And now it turns out that looking around a pseudo-non-criminal field in order to see the greenery of a deputy or a governor's sort on it, we see a growth, gray, nondescript, distorted forms and clearly unviable.
      "Well, why are you standing," the authorities say to us and grins broadly, "go, reap your deputies and governors! You wanted non-criminal ones, so here they are. Here is Prilepin, who cannot say two words in discussions, because he is a writer, not a tribune, because a tribune is a different gift. But Vasya Lozhkin, who will draw in such a way that the whole country, throwing off despondency, will burst out laughing, and its tone will rise for a few minutes. But keep in mind that this is all Vasya Lozhkin is capable ... Go on, reap! Just don't expect real political activity from these people.

          Wait, colleague, wait. Time, they say, heals. Wait, hope and with all our strength to grow out of ourselves worthy deputies and governors.
          But there are two troubles.
          One is that we are a bad, very tired seed. The younger generations from our subsequent seeds grow politically tired at once.
          And the second trouble is that we do not choose, but they choose from us, and the worst ones, those for whom politics is just a way to make money. I don’t believe a single current self-nominated candidate. In the absence of ideals of goodness and selflessness, each of them will selflessly fight for their own good, that is, for the second meaning of the word. And the time interval from the beginning of the election to the manifestation of this state of affairs will depend only on the degree of greed and courage of the chosen one.
          But time does not stand still. And while we are here poking around with attempts to grow something out of ourselves, the era will change so that the grown will be unnecessary, and simply ridiculous in the new realities.
          Therefore, only hope remains.
          You ask, hope for what, for whom? And God knows him! Hope for a higher power. We have always lived like this. I look at the upper echelons of power and see that they also live like this. Because both they and we - we all come from the lowest. As a result, our attempts to take our destiny into our own hands seem to our superiors to be simply indecent, violating the custom of non-resistance.
          So it remains just to wait, not raising expectation into the meaning of life, but to welcome those who do not agree with this. The movement of units forward, no matter what the motives are fueled, moves everyone. Any renewal, without making the common hope more real, strengthens it.
          Our government understands this. Vaughn, in the press today: Public transport in 2035 will be free. The Ministry of Transport decided!))))
