MOSCOW, September 15 (Itar-Tass) — Delegates to a congress of the Right Cause party made a decision on Thursday not to elect a new party chairman yet. Chief of the executive committee of the Right Cause party Andrei Dunayev will be acting head of the party until a new party chairman is elected.
Dunayev said that more consultations should be held and that the party leader would be elected either at the next session or later. Andrei Dunayev will perform managerial duties for the period of the election campaign.
Earlier on Thursday a Congress of the Right Cause had sacked Prokhorov from the post of the party chairman.
The delegates to the congress also adopted a new party Charter. Member of the federal political council Vladimir Nikitin said the new Charter offers more freedom to regional departments. In particular, a clause of the former charter, which demanded coordination of all lists of candidates running at elections of all levels with the center, has been annulled.
Dunayev confirmed that the Right Cause intends to take part in the Duma election and win more than seven percent of votes.
