Russia 2016 Legislative Elections

дума, Я думаю! (Duma - think tank, to think) September 18 Make Russia Great Again!

Я думаю

Russians headed to parliamentary polls on Sunday, with parties loyal to President Vladimir Putin expected to maintain their
dominance as the Kremlin sought to make a show of eliminating voter fraud after mass opposition protests. Legislative elections
were held in Russia on 18 September 2016, having been brought forward from 4 December. At stake were the 450 seats in the
State Duma of the 7th convocation, the lower house of the Federal Assembly of Russia. Prior to the election United Russia had
been the ruling party since winning the 2011 elections with 49.32% of the vote, and taking 238 seats (53%) of the seats in the State Duma.
