MOSCOW, November 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s right-wing forces lack a strong leader, the head of the Kremlin administration, Sergei Naryshkin, said in an interview with the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper on Wednesday.
“It is obvious that the right-wing flank does not have enough efficient and responsible leaders. Unfortunately,” Naryshkin said, calling that a subjective factor.
“You will agree that the political landscape in the country is shaped first of all on the basis of those political moods that exist in the society,” he noted. “The weakness of these moods explains a relative inexpressiveness of the right wing of the political field,” the Kremlin official stressed.
At the same time, he dismisses the possibility that lift-wing forces will get the majority of votes at the upcoming parliamentary election, due on December 4. “You and I, we don’t believe fantastic forecasts,” he said. “But the main thing is that I am confident the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) itself does not want the development of the situation under this fantastic scenario,” he added.
“In my opinion, there is only one political force in the country at the moment, which is not afraid of responsibility for the present and the future development of the country, and is capable to take this responsibility,” Naryshkin stressed.
