The head of the Central Election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, called the nomination of candidates for elections to the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg three candidates with the same first and last names as a mockery of voters.

Two of them changed their names on the eve of the elections, taking for themselves the same as those of the deputy Boris Vishnevsky. As a result, Boris Gennadievich Vishnevsky (previously Aleksey Shmelнщv with his passport), Boris Ivanovich Vishnevsky (Viktor Bykov) and Boris Lazarevich Vishnevsky were registered for the elections this year.

In addition, the two candidates also had similar hairstyles like the latter and had a beard.

"I think it's just a shame, a disgrace This is extreme, the lowest point of the fall of the political consultants who serve clients It's just a mockery of the voters...", - said Pamfilova on the air "KommersantFM".

After this situation, the CEC intends to initiate amendments to the law, which would prevent similar situations in the future.

Formally, according to the law, all three candidates can now participate in the elections. Pamfilova only expressed the hope that the voters themselves will figure out whom to vote for, since the incident with the change of name on the eve of the elections is widely publicized.
