By Timothy J. Colton; Jerry F. Hough | Go to book overview

vaded the campaign, gaining expression in complicated interethnic alliances in Bashkortostan and in a defiant, elite-led resistance to the election itself in Tatarstan.

In the conclusion (chapter 21), Jerry F. Hough recaps the book's findings and ponders some lessons for the future of Russia's protodemocracy and for Western policy toward it.

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.
