MOSCOW, September 13 (Itar-Tass) — The Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) intends to gather 25 percent of votes at the upcoming parliamentary elections on December 4, LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said on Tuesday, as he was replying to an Itar-Tass question.
"We're hoping for victory," Zhirinovsky underlined, reminding that his party had won the parliamentary elections in December 1993.
"Given Russia's specifics, we're hoping to come second," he added.
Under the draft decision by the Party's 23rd Congress, the first trio of LDPR leaders comprises Vladimir Zhirinovsky, head of the State Duma committee for CIS affairs Alexei Ostrovsky and head of the LDPR faction at the incumbent 5th Duma Igor Lebedev.
There are ten candidates on the federal LDPR list. Aside from the leaders, it includes Yaroslav Nilov, Alexei Didenko, Sergei Kalashnikov, Leonid Slutsky, Valery Seleznyov, Dmitry Svishchev and Yuri Napso.
The LDPR is nominating its candidates in 82 regional groups.
The final decision on the LDPR's list of candidates for the Duma of the 6th convocation is due later on Tuesday.
