Russia – Parliamentary election

The election to the Russian Duma was held on Sunday. There have been many reports of electoral fraud. However, the Russian Electoral Commission has announced the following preliminary results. I am taking the seat share from Wikipedia.

United Russia – 49.29%, 238 seats (-77)
Communist Party – 19.2%, 92 seats (+35)
A Just Russia – 13.25%, 64 seats (+26)
Liberal Democratic Party – 11.68%, 56 seats (+16)
Yabloko – 3.43%, 0 seats (no change)

There is some slightly cynical commentary on the elections at The Monkey Cage.
