Russia breakfast meeting with Helge Blakkisrud was held on 26 September

Norwegian-Russian Chamber of Commerce (NRCC) and Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO) had a pleasure to invite their members to Russia Breakfast Meeting with Helge Blakkisrud, Senior Research Fellow, Head of the Research group on Russia, Eurasia and the Arctic at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs. The meeting took place at NHO facilities.

The topic of the meeting was "Duma elections in Russia 2016: Results and Consequences". The Russian Federation held its elections for the seventh convocation of the State Duma, its lower house of parliament, on 18 September. Only four political parties managed to win seats in the Duma, among them pro-Kremlin political party United Russia (54,2%), The Communist Party (13,3%), far-right Liberal Democratic Party (13,1%), and A Fair Russia party (6,2%). The results significantly strengthen the United Russia's dominance in the Duma and reinforce President Putin’s position ahead of the 2018 presidential elections. Less than a half of Russia's registered voters turned up at polling station in this election.

Helge Blakkisrud discussed the electoral system in Russia in general and the results of the recent parliamentary elections. He also outlined possible impacts of the elections' results on Russia's political system.

We thank all the participants in the meeting for the interactive communication.
