MOSCOW, December 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Just Russia will not form any coalitions with the ruling United Russia party in the new State Duma.
“There can be no agreement with United Russia, even a formal one,” Mironov said on Saturday, December 10.
In his opinion, the December 4 Duma elections showed that “our society no longer accepts monopoly”.
“All attempts by the ruling party to convince people that security, stability and prosperity of the country depend on the continuation of the present policy have failed,” Mironov said.
He believes that “people will no longer tolerate its humiliating position”.
Mironov said he had travelled across the country during the election campaign and saw people’s sentiment. “Happy television reports hide real life. Irritated by arbitrariness and impudence of the bureaucracy at all levels, people do not believe anything or anyone,” he said.
Just Russia will use the public dissent against the results of the December 4 Duma polls in its presidential election campaign, one of the party leaders, Nikolai Levichev, said.
He said the party would have to keep in touch with the people who take to streets” in order lead its candidate to the presidential runoff.
“You must understand that we have a real chance not just wreck [United Russia’s candidate] Vladimir Putin’s nerves, but choose such a strategy that will lead us to a victory,” Levichev said at a party congress on December 10.
He believes that Just Russia members must take to streets so that the majority of people “get used to the thought” that the Just Russia candidate will win.
The party congress nominated Mironov as its presidential candidate by a 232-5 vote on a non-alternative basis.
Mironov promised to travel his “road to the end” and that “the ending will be fair and happy”.
“This is why I am running. We will win by all means,” he said.
