  •  Arkadiy V. Shemelin    


The represented article is devoted to the analysis of peculiarities of embodiment of democratic transits into the legal field of the Russian state and their effect on election legislation in Russia. As a result it was concluded that for Russia namely in the context of election legal relations the effect of democratic principles has great value that is reduced to the following one: approval of internationally accepted values in the state sphere of Russia, increase of the responsibility level both of state and personality, wide distribution of justice principles that as a result will lead to the increase of population trust to the state system apparatus with simultaneous quality increase of officials’ work. At the attention is paid to that the modern democracy in Russia bears formal character, it doesn’t express and can’t express interests of the population majority, as it happens in the conditions of western democracy. In this connection the basic task in the part of indirect embodiment of democracy principles in the election legal relations is the development of mechanisms of their implementation, which were already developed and are valid in the foreign countries.
