Russia heads for political deadlock
Wednesday 24 May 1995
Moscow - President Boris Yeltsin vetoed a law which would have set rules for elections to Russia's lower chamber of parliament, raising prospects of a political stalemate before crucial polls scheduled for December. Mr Yeltsin said he opposed electing half of the 450 lower chamber's deputies by party list, a system used in 1993 and reaffirmed this month by the State Duma deputies. He said he wanted 300 Duma seats contested in single- candidate constituencies, cutting the number of list seats to 150 Reuter
