MOSCOW, December 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich believes that an absolutely new rightwing party should be created in Russia.
“It seems to me that a normal rightwing party should be formed, meanwhile, not on the basis of a current rightwing party, which lost all its authority and reputation. Just to create a new party from scratch that will meet the interests of a considerable share of people,” Dvorkovich said live on the Ekho Moskvy radio station on Sunday.
According to some media reports several days ago, the Moscow regional office of the Right Cause Party headed by Boris Nadezhdin intended to state about its voluntary dissolution on December 24 to launch the creation of a new rightwing party. Meanwhile, Nadezhdin offers to do it together with Alexei Kudrin.
However, a source among the closest associates of the former finance minister told Itar-Tass that Kudrin “does not have any consultations for the creation of a democratic liberal movement and did not discuss this issue with anyone from Right Cause, moreover, with Nadezhdin.”
On Saturday, Kudrin delivered a speech at the rally under the slogan “For Fair Elections!” in Moscow, where he supported the demand to dismiss Chairman of the Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov and “to select a group, which will be able to formulate the demands for a political reform.” “This cannot be only said, something should be done. The elections should be held on new terms,” Kudrin said. He also offered “to introduce the provision about early elections in the resolution,” noting that “the parliament cannot but work for six months, because now Russia is about to plunge in a crisis.”
A business tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov, who is running in the presidential elections as a self-nominee, because he was dismissed from the post of the Right Cause leader last autumn, attended the same rally, but did not speak up there. On the same day the former Right Cause leader told reporters in his public reception office that he intends to put up his election program for public debates and does not rule out that this program will lay a basis for the creation of a new liberal party. “I would like to show a good result at the presidential elections and already depending from whether or not the voters will support my program, I will take a decision (regarding the party). But new political parties should be created,” he said.
The Right Cause Party gained only 0.6% of votes at the parliamentary elections.
