A Guide to Russian Elections

Neil Mallory Innes Munro, Richard Rose

Research output: Working paper


The mechanics of the Russian system for electing a president and a parliament (Duma) are set out in this paper, which details everything from how parties and candidates can get on the ballot to how votes are counted and winners declared. In addition to giving up-to-date details about new rules for electing the Duma in December, 2007 and amendments to the process of electing a president, the rules for earlier Russian elections are set out and Russia’s election history reviewed. Tables based on official Russian sources give full lists of parties, votes and seats for Duma elections since 1993 and for the presidential elections won by Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin.
