Two Capitals Think Otherwise

Results of Russian presidential elections in Moscow and St. Petersburg differ from the rest of the country.

      According to the Moscow's Election Commission, Vladimir Putin has received 46.95 percent of the vote in Moscow, second place was taken my independent Mikhail Prokhorov with 20.45 percent and the third spot was taken by Communist Gennady Zyuganov with 19.18 percent. Thereby, Moscow is the only region in Russia where Putin wasn't able to break through the 50% barier, which allows a candidate to win elections in the first round. The turnout in Moscow is 58.18 percent

      Results in St. Petersburg are closer to all-country results, but still there are some interesting differences. So, 58,7 percent in St. Petersburg were taken by Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Prokhorov was the second with 15,5 percent of votes and Gennady Zyuganov was the third with 13 percent. Sergei Mironov received 6,6% and Vladimir Zhirinovsky - 4,6%.

      As we can see, though Putin won elections in this region, his results are lower than in the country on the whole (63,8%). And it is important to note that two capitals are the regions where Mikhail Prokhorov was able to take the second place which is very good for "political newbie".

      However, these results don't affect general statistics much, as winners of the elections are announced in accordance to all-Russian voting. But it is surely very useful for examination of public's political views in big cities, as there is the highest concentration of people who play an active role in the country's political and social life.
