MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) — Speaker of the State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament Boris Gryzlov said a report about United Russia's achievements will make groundwork for the Party's election campaign.
"Elections give us the opportunity to tell voters what we've achieved in a decade and in the past four years," Gryzlov said reminding that the Party would mark its 10th anniversary on December 1.
The speaker underlined that the Party had something to give an account of and that it had "worthy results."
"They will make groundwork of our election campaign," he went on to say.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Central Election Commission registered United Russia's election list led by President Dmitry Medvedev. The leader of the list personally attended the registration procedure where he received a certificate of No 1 candidate.
"Everybody is equal before the law," Gryzlov quoted Medvedev as saying.
United Russia’s list contains 597 candidates, including 172 incumbent State Duma lawmakers. Just 415 candidates are Party members, 15 are representatives of public organizations, and 167 candidates do not belong to any party. There are 480 men and 117 women among the candidates.
