Abstract [en]

Over the post- Soviet period, the vibrancy of Russian democracy has diminished significantly,and the national electoral process has become increasingly consolidated and predictable. Whilst this to some extent has reflected sustained support for the president and its reflection in the party system, a significant amount has also come from continual legislative engineering of the electoral system by the regime in order to benefit from incumbency.  The chapter gives an overview of the Russian elections since Soviet times to the present day, focusing on electoral behaviour, legislative engineering, political parties and the integrity of the electoral process.  It is noted that the word 'vybor' in Russian means both “election” and “choice”. Whilst there is still a menu of parties and candidates, it has been increasingly clear in recent years that the regime would prefer that menu to be table d’hôte rather than à la carte. More than three decades after perestroika ushered in a new political pluralism, Russia again has elections without (real) choice.
