So, Agayev's votes were taken into account while adopting the bills at sessions on September 15, 16, 22 and 23. This is evidenced by the data from the official system of accounting and analysis of the results of the votes of deputies. By the way, the people's chosen one died on September 23, and before that he was in a coma. “He was in the hospital for a long time, he had four operations. He died there”, - said Nikolay Kolomeytsev, deputy chairman of the Communist Party faction in the State Duma.
Shurchanov, who died from coronavirus on December 18, according to the data of the same system, took part in meetings on December 8, 9, 15 and 16. At the same time, it is known that the last three weeks before his death, he was in serious condition.
Kolomeytsev suggests that deputies from United Russia, who usually sat with him in neighboring seats, could vote for Agayev. However, Deputy Speaker of the State Duma, United Russia Party member Alexander Zhukov ruled out this version. “We have a rule - every deputy votes for himself”, - he stressed. You cannot vote remotely either.
The head of the press service of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Alexander Yushchenko, believes that there was a technical failure in the voting system. “I have had situations when I press the buttons, but the system shows that this was not the case. So there was some kind of error, a failure. Is the party responsible for this system?", - he said in an interview with Podyom. In addition, Yushchenko called the publication about the voting of the deceased deputies "cynical and boorish."
