Russian Election Chief Slams U.S. Electoral System

The head of the Russian Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, spoke of the imperfect American electoral system in an article published in "Rossiyskaya Gazeta". "U.S. presidential elections are neither direct, nor general, nor equal, and do not provide for secret voting," states Churov. In particular, at the beginning of 2012 only one in five American adults was registered to vote; however, on the lists there are the names of about 1.8 million "dead souls", says the official. "All 233 years of the history of organizing and conducting democratic elections in the U.S. . . . abound in examples of U.S. citizens' rights violations," concludes the official. Churov has repeatedly stated that he considers the organization of elections in the US as being one of the worst in world.
