You asked for evidence of these comments of mer's. I tried to help you with that.

Despite my many years studying (and being involved in) politics, I have no idea what "rep. by pop" is. It is certainly not proportional representation.
rep. by pop. is a short form for representaion by population...

I was asking for an article that confirmed that Mararat had indeed been elected. We have that, he got in and that's good.

If that was what you were asking for, then it wasn't apparent from your post - neither in what you you said nor in its contextual positioning.

Oh - "representation by population" - you mean that the areas from which representatives are elected contain roughly equivalent numbers of voters instead of being based on areas without regard to whether or not there are roughly equivalent numbers of voters in the various areas.

That may well be so. But it does not distinguish the electoral system that it is used - whether it is voting for individuals or parties (or lists of candidates).

It is not the same thing as proportional representation - at all.

And, given that Marat was third on the party list for United Russia in the area in which he was standing in a system of proportional representation, there would have had to be a catastrophic falling off of votes for United Russia for him to have not got sufficient quotas to have been elected.

Once it was apparent that United Russia had got nearly 50% of the over-all vote and close on 45% of votes in the Nizhny Novgorod region (reported widely as preliminary results on 5 December 2011 ) then it was obvious that Marat had been elected.

Which is how come the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) Champions Tour could report that Marat had been elected (which you posted at #4591) prior to the Russian Central Election Commission formally announcing the final results.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Am I the only one who finds this pretty dissappointing of him or have I not read enough posts in this thread?

I find his interview above pretty funny...how he chose not to do commercials but rather to join Putin's party, which basicly more or less granted him a place in the parliament; and now poor him he has to go every day to the office. I hope he does realize that going daily to the office is what most people do and don't boast about it. I also hope he realizes that he did not join a minor, revolutionary party and earned a place in the parliament for his extraordinary vision....

I know I am trolling (a bit), but felt I had the right to say this since I've been his fan for (too many!) years

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

I think that Marat ir a toy and only following orders from other people. He does not like politics, is bored. And I do not get to be 5 years as a political.He is only a part of Putin's strategy to win over people. Berlusconi already made ​​some years ago.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

I'm glad many people in Russia are so courageous they spend these days in the cold outside in demonstrations against Poutine. Kudos to them. :whorship:

no offence but this sounds a bit ridiculous. As much as I support the course there is nothing particularly courageous about latest big demonstrations. Authorities have given greenlight, it's not really that cold now, so people coming are in no danger at all. It's more like a fashionable mainstream now among intelligent but unfortunately minor group of people compared to general population.
