MOSCOW. Nov 10 (Interfax) - A high turnout in the upcoming
parliamentary election in Russia will cut the scale of possible
falsifications, Yabloko party top candidate Grigory Yavlinsky
told a Thursday press conference at the Interfax main office.
"The higher turnout is and the more people take part
in the ballot, the lesser falsifications will be," he
Yabloko is practically the only alternative to the incumbent
authorities, Yavlinsky said. "Unfortunately, no other
democratic parties or groups are registered - we have always
said that the denial of their registration is a violation
of civil rights - and there are no other representatives expressing
European modern democratic political views on the voting papers.
There is no one else but Yabloko," he said.
Citizens who do not support the current policy must not abstain
from voting, he said.
"A situation in which the whole country can express
its attitude to the current policy on one day is a unique
chance. There will be no such chance again for the next five
years," he said.
"Voting for no matter who is pointless," Yavlinsky
said. He called on Russians to make a conscious choice.
