MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Eleven thousand people will attend the second day of the United Russia congress in Moscow’s Luzhniki sports center, head of the party’s Supreme Council, State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov said in answer to an Itar-Tass question.
He said that number would include congress delegates, guests and reporters. “That is an unprecedented format for Russia,” said Gryzlov, who viewed the large number of the participants in the party congress as another sign of the support to United Russia.

The Supreme Council Bureau and the General Council Presidium of United Russia will coordinate the final candidate list before the Saturday meeting of the congress.
