The figure of the day: Only 6.8 percent of citizens can come to the polling stations in Moscow?
Such a meager figure was counted by the editor-in-chief of Echo of Moscow radiostation Alexey Venediktov in his telegram channel.
"Ella Pamfilova said that a maximum of 12 people should vote per hour at each precinct.
There are more than 7 million voters in Moscow. There are 3,300 polling stations in Moscow.
We multiply 3,300 by 12 people and by 12 hours.
We get that in Moscow only 475 thousand voters can pass through standard voting at polling stations, or - attention - 6.8% of voters.
Oh, mommy!", - exclaims Venediktov. And we do together with him.
Hence the conclusion: either Pamfilova was mistaken in the calculations, or the authorities did not count on the mass arrival of Muscovites.
However, the last statement is hardly appropriate. "The epidemiological situation should not affect the desire of citizens to vote on amendments to the Constitution", - President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today. According to him, the situation is gradually improving, on the streets of the whole country more and more people.
We recall - the main voting day is July 1. It is declared a day off.
However, it will be possible to vote within a few days before that. All the necessary sanitary standards will be observed at the sites”, - emphasized Ella Pamfilova, the head of the Central Electoral Commission.
