MOSCOW, September 15 (Itar-Tass) —Leader of the Right Cause party Mikhail Prokhorov has called upon his fellow party members to quit the Right Cause and create a new party.
"The party congress has been falsified, but instituting court proceedings is difficult, our documents have not been returned to us; a mandate commission did not let anyone in," Prokhorov declared before the party Congress met a second time on Thursday. "Therefore we should reject membership in this party because it has discredited itself; it is no longer the party our supporters voted for, " Prokhorov said.
Yevgeny Roizman, head of the City without Drugs Fund, who had been included into the Right Cause election list, which is believed one of the causes of a split within the party, declared that both Prokhorov and himself had already given a notice that they are quitting the Right Cause. "The party is not ready for an election campaign yet, it should gather strength so as to effectively present itself in the next election," Roizman said.
