Vladimir Putin signed Federal Law On the Election of Deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.

In accordance with the Federal Law On the Election of Deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, State Duma deputy elections are held on the basis of a mixed election system stipulating that one half of deputies are elected in single-mandate electoral districts (one deputy per district) while the other half are elected within the federal electoral district proportionally to the number of votes cast for federal candidate lists.

In particular, the Law establishes the procedures for nominating candidates, both directly and through federal political party candidate lists, the requirements for federal candidate lists, the procedures for registering candidates and federal lists and the rules for creating electoral funds.

The Federal Law also sets forth the principles for holding State Duma deputy elections, the powers of the electoral committees, procedures for conducting pre-election campaigns, financing elections, voting and counting votes, and appealing the actions and decisions of electoral committees. In regulating these issues, the most recent innovations in electoral legislation and decisions by the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation are taken into account.
