United Russia preliminary party voting (primaries) will take place on the 22nd of May. By its results candidates for the September election in the 6th State Duma of the Russian Federation will be selected. YSIA decided to find out whether Yakutsk’s residents were informed about the upcoming elections and who they were ready to support.
In order to get into the party list, all the candidates need to take part in primaries and earn voters trust. For this reason they are offered to participate in pre-election debate. Yakutia propose 16 candidates for the preliminary party voting, including Galina Danchikova, the Chair of the Government, and Yury Kupriyanov, the Chief of the Head’s administration.
