Zakharova evaluated the elections in England 15:01

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the course of the elections in the British Parliament with a quote from the author Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”. The relevant article was published on her website Telegram channel.

On July 4, the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) presented a report on the UK’s electoral process. According to Zakharova, the assessments were disappointing, finding serious violations and shortcomings in the kingdom’s electoral system. She said the OSCE deliberately ignored flaws in UK electoral legislation and refused to fully monitor the electoral process. A small panel will assess the election results.

Zakharova stressed that it is unlikely that “a dozen people” will be able to properly monitor the progress of the entire election process. In her opinion, “disrespectful conduct of the actions of the ODIHR” is extremely indicative and suggests double standards. She recalled that the West demands sending large delegations to countries whose policies do not suit it.

“As the Englishman Lewis Carroll said, ‘you have to run as fast as you can to stay in your place here’… It seems that the British electoral system is doing exactly that right now, trying to maintain the appearance of democracy,” concluded the Russian Foreign Ministry representative.

On July 5, it was learned that the Labour Party won the elections for the lower house of the British Parliament with 326 out of 650 seats. This will form a new government. Sunak’s Conservative Party, which has been in power for 14 years, suffered its biggest defeat in its history. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak It was announcedHe resigned as leader of the Conservative Party following defeat in the parliamentary elections.

Previously in Britain reported It’s about intimidation of candidates during elections.
