The Communist Party was represented on this page as controlling, with the help of its allies, more than half of the Duma. I just edited this to say it was actually less. This is true by both the post election seat count (Bloc for USSR  + Communists  + Agrarians  + Power To The People  + Pamfilov Bloc  + Ribkin Bloc  = 192), and the Second Duma seat table (Communists  + Power To The People  + Agrarian  = 215). There are 450 seats, so in each case, that is less than a majority of seats. Perhaps in individual votes the Communists and their allies could prevail because other parties assisted them, but if I have the right parties as the Communists and allies parties, then in neither case did they control a majority of seats. Someone please correct me if I am wrong about this, but it appears this is the proper description. Zachary Klaas (talk) 15:52, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
