The preliminary results of the Chuvash election are now announced. The republic's

Election Committee Leader Aleksandr Tzvetkov explained the figures in the morning of September 14.

Among the candidates to become the Head of Chuvashia the former head Mihail Ignatiev leads significantly with 65% of votes. The candidate from the Spravedlivaya Rossiya Party Oleg Nikolaev is second, and Communist Valenitne Shurchanov is third with 15 and 12 per cent of the votes respectively.

Half of the newly elected deputees of Cheboksary Assembly represent the Edinaya Rossiya Party. The second largest represented party is Communists (15%), then Spravedlivaya Rossiya (12%), and "Liberal Democratic" party (8%).

The election turnout was at 58% and has not spiked any controversy nor interest.

During Chuvash and Belorussian heads of states meeting on April 9 in Minsk Ignatiev expressed his belief that Belarus is a reliable and promising partner. The Chuvash head noted : "there are some areas of common interest that can give an additional impetus to our businessmen and enterprises and can help us develop this field through horizontal ties."

It was emphasized that the two states have worked hard to establish close economic ties which resulted in double increase in bilateral trade over the last three years. Strengthening technical, scientific and agricultural cooperation seems most promising to Ignatiev.

On March 12, Chuvash Orthography: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow conference was held in the Humanities Institute of Chuvash Republic. The event gathered together teachers, journalists and researchers.

Surely there are many thinkers and ideas on how to write correctly - those who want to return to the old rules, those who prefer no change, and those who want "reforms" like eliminating ambiguity when writing compound words. The Bible translator Eva Lisina, for instance, considers old rules to let words be perceived in deeper, more meaningful ways.

But yes, the question was put forward - is it really necessary to debate orthography when school hours for Chuvash are significantly reduced?

The Conference was attended by the head of Chuvash Republic's State Council Committee of Social Politics and National Question Peter Krasnov.
