Foreshadowing the parliamentary election later that year, the method of tallying the votes, and especially the proportions of the whole, was controversial in April 1993. Invalid ballots were counted in the denominator of the referendum results. Thus, although about 1.6 million more voted in favor of an early presidential
election than voted against it, the record showed fewer than 50 percent of the official vote total (including invalid ballots) appoving a presidential election. Rossiiskaya gazeta, May 6, 1993, p. 1.
