Deputy Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs D.G. Novikov is currently in Managua. He represented the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation as an international observer who took part in accompanying the Nicaraguan elections together with representatives of the Federation Council and the Central Election Commission.
Dmitry Novikov notes: “Given the high quality of the organization of all electoral procedures, I think that the official voting results in Nicaragua will not differ significantly from the preliminary data. And these data have already been announced. According to the results of the last elections, the Sandinistas have won a convincing victory. Daniel Ortega and Rosario Murilho are elected President and Vice President of the country. The Sandinista National Liberation Front gains a solid majority in parliament – the National Assembly. In both cases, the level of support reached three quarters of the number of voters who took part in the voting. ”
Dmitry Novikov especially notes the good organization of work at the polling stations. He managed to assess the voting process at more than fifty such points. Regarding Biden’s statement on the non-recognition of the election results by the United States, the Russian deputy sneers: “We did not meet Mr. Biden at the polling stations in Nicaragua. But we saw Nicaraguans who walked and voted for the future of their country. According to our feelings, they want to be proud of their homeland and do not intend to turn it into a mandated territory of Washington. Perhaps, in Washington itself, someone does not like it, but they will have to live with it. ”
More than 200 observers from different countries of the world arrived in Nicaragua to participate in the international support of the elections. A significant number of foreign correspondents participated in the coverage of the voting process.
