Monitoring of electoral rights observance continues

The working group, established in accordance with the order of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, is actively monitoring the observance of electoral rights of citizens in the lead-up to the forthcoming presidential elections in Russia.

To date, the hotline received more than 50 calls; the rights and means of legal protection have been clarified to all those who applied. It should be noted that citizens are also interested in issues that are not related to the topic of electoral rights observance.

In addition, the Office of the High Commissioner is receiving written appeals from citizens regarding violations of electoral rights. All the applications are under personal control of the federal ombudswoman.

Within the framework of monitoring cooperation with regional Commissioners is carried out, as well as interaction with the staff of the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation and the monitoring working group of the Council under the President of the Russian Federation on the development of civil society and human rights. On March 12, representatives of the High Commissioner’s Office took part in a meeting on the organization of monitoring during the election day.

Recall, on February 15, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova signed an order establishing a working group to monitor the observance of the electoral rights of citizens during the preparation and conduct of the election of the President of the Russian Federation. The working group consists of representatives of human rights and scientific communities, as well as employees of the High Commissioner’s Office.
