Voting results

Sad, but utterly true - as a result of yesterdays elections we have legislative and executive powers in the hands of one person (or rather group of people).

Putins party got about 63% of the vote. Well, not surprising in a way. The only problem is that on most of Russian Internet forums and on Russian LiveJournal majority of people were against Putins party. Lot's of people were going to damage their ballots, because on this elections there's no "Against all candidates" line.

Now I'm wandering if new parliament will amend the Constitution to let Putin stay for the 3rd term before the New Years or next year.
Seems to me that they are going to do it. Well we'll see.
