Exit polls suggest four Russian parties enter new Duma


10:27, December 05, 2011

MOSCOW, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- Exit polls on Sunday showed that Russia's four parties, including the ruling United Russia, the Communist Party, the Liberal Democratic Party and A Just Russia, have gained enough votes to enter the sixth State Duma.

The other three parties running for the Duma seats fail to clear the 7-percent threshold, according to the exit poll conducted by the All-Russia Center for Public Opinion (VTsIOM).

In particular, the poll showed that 48.5 percent of the respondents voted for United Russia, 19.8 percent for the Communist Party, 12.8 percent for A Just Russia and 11.42 percent for the Liberal Democratic Party.

Another exit poll by the Public Opinion Foundation (FOM) also showed that the ruling party may gain 46 percent of votes, losing the two-thirds constitutional majority in the new Duma.

The party won 64.3 percent of votes in 2007 elections.

According to Central Election Commission (CEC) chairman Vladimir Churov, based on the 26.95 percent of ballots counted so far, the United Russia has gained 47.33 percent of votes.

The early results reflected "real situation" in the country, said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
