The Regional Dimension of Russia's 2007-2008 Elections

James Goode

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Th e key to Russia’s presidential and parliamentary elections lies in the regions. Th e March 2007 regional elections show that United Russia will continue to dominate, but that it will face new challenges from the rapidly rising Just Russia. Th e new party could help stimulate the fracturing of the regional elite. If the governors are willing to take risks, they may have increased infl uence over the course of the 2007 parliamentary elections. Moreover, the rise of Just Russia could make it diffi cult for the center to maintain control over the regions.
