Zyuganov says commission comes to Primorye from Moscow to analyze election results

MOSCOW. Sept 18 (Interfax) - Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov has said that a special commission has left for the Primorye Territory to analyze results of the runoff gubernatorial election.

"A commission has been sent there. It includes representatives of the Central Elections Commission, and the presidential administration's office for the Far Eastern Federal District. The commission is at work, and it has been decided to review results at certain polling stations," Zyuganov told reporters on Tuesday.

A meeting with the head of state is possible after the commission does its work, he said.

"People in the Primorye Territory are outraged, so we are containing their indignation," Zyuganov said.

It is necessary "to stop crime in the Primorye Territory, given that most of those areas are still run by gangs," he said.
