MOSCOW, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The Fair Russia party is going to nominate Sergei Mironov for the president of Russia, the party’s leader, Nikolai Levichev, told a news conference on Tuesday.
“I believe that at the December 10 congress Sergei Mironov will be supported. At least as the leader of the party I am going to suggest nominating precisely this candidature,” Levichev confirmed.
He believes that Mironov, who just recently held the position of Federation Council speaker and was a member of the Security Council, has the greatest chances of contesting the highest post in the country.
“We are nominating Mironov for president not in order to participate in the race just for the sake of warming up, but for trying to win,” the Fair Russia leader said.
About mass media publications to the effect Mironov would not participate in the presidential race Levichev said it was a rumor launched with the aim to cause discord within the party’s leadership.
“There are no differences. We are united,” he said.
He also declared that Fair Russia was drawing up a list of shadow Cabinet Ministers. On that list Oksana Dmitriyeva would most probably be shadow prime minister.
