At the same time, starting in 2016, the authorities, feeling that the people were tired of the lack of alternatives, decided to formulate lists of the party using the primaries method, i.e.on a competitive basis. As a result, fans of observing the vicissitudes of the electoral struggle were pleased with several juicy scandals about the "grossest violations of inner-party democracy."On the one hand, with the introduction of the primaries, the EDR became more transparent to the outside observer, on the other hand, the lovingly raised vertical of power within the party suffered.
