Russian legislative election, 2003


Russian legislative election, 2003

Legislative elections were held in the Russian Federation on December 7 2003. At stake were the 450 seats in the State Duma (Gosudarstvennaya Duma), the lower house of the Federal Assembly of Russia (The legislature).

As expected, the United Russia pro-Vladimir Putin party won the largest number of votes and seats. Of the other parties, the Communist Party is still the largest, though much reduced in strength. Liberal Democratic Party improved its position by a few delegates. The liberal Yabloko party and the liberal-conservative SPS lost most of its seats. The only other significant party is socialist Homeland Union.
