The election in Russia on December 4 has come under criticism, with many calling for a recount. This week, the Russian Orthodox Church joined the numbers of those who recommend a reform of the process.

From the article:
Quote
“It is evident that the secretive nature of certain elements of the electoral system concerns people, and there must be more public control over this system,” said Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, the most prominent spokesman for the church, in remarks to a widely followed Orthodox news Web site. “We must decide together how to do this through civilized public dialogue.”
