`US presidential polls among world`s worst`
Mosocw: Russia`s election chief Vladimir Churov said on Thursday that the system of US Presidential Elections is "one of the worst in the world".
"Presidential Elections in the United States are one of the worst in terms of organisation," Churov, who heads Russia`s Central Election Commission, said while speaking during a visit to an educational camp in Russia`s central Lipetsk region.
"US Presidential Elections are indirect; they vote for electors, and it has happened that those electors then voted against the voters` will," Churov said.
He was referring to the 538 members of the US electoral college who cast ballots on behalf of the voters to elect a president.
"Several US presidents have been elected by a minority of the [popular] vote," he added.
