GORKI, September 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev believes that Russian parliament should reflect mostly fully political convictions of Russian citizens.
In reply to a journalist’s question in an interview with the Russian television channels about the Right Cause party situation and how the liberal ideas can be realized in Russia, Medvedev noted that Right Cause “is absolutely unlucky with responsible leaders.” He also believes that “the recent events certainly made the party weaker.”
“But I will say just one thing, in my view and this point of view coincides with the party position, our party is benevolent, as I described it at the congress (of the United Russia Party – Itar-Tass), our parliament should reflect election preferences of all Russian citizens: the positions of leftists, centrists, rightists, conservatives and democrats,” he stated. “In general, all those who have some opportunities to influence the public opinion, particularly for whom people will vote or would like to vote,” Medvedev stated. “Therefore, the legitimacy of a parliament, which has all such forces, is quite higher,” the president said with confidence.
Dmitry Medvedev’s interview with the Russian television channels will be broadcast at 8.30 p.m. Moscow time on Friday.
