LONDON, January 22 (Itar-Tass) — Russian businessman Mikhail Prokhorov, waiting for an official registration of him by the CEC as a presidential candidate, expressed intention to remain in politics “in dead earnest and for long”, and also promised to form his own party irrespective of the results of the upcoming presidential elections.
“I have a platform, shall have supporters; the platform is alive, and changes can be put into it constantly, since I want this programme to be popular,” Prokhorov said on Saturday in an interview with British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
He did not preclude a chance either to work in a team of another candidate if he carries the elections. But he did not call a candidate's name. “All depends on what we shall do in this case,” the businessman noted. “A post for me is not sort of manna from heaven; it’s important for me to translate into life programmes that are close to me in spirit and that are backed by my supporters.”
Prokhorov promised to come to the next rally of the opposition, scheduled for February 4, but intimated at the same time that he would not take the rostrum and would prefer to listen to other speakers.
“I should not like to exploit these sentiments of people as a political platform, since I’m a presidential candidate, and it seems to me that people come to rallies not to discuss politics, but to express their agreement or disagreement with those ideas,” stressed the businessman.
