MOSCOW, February 6 (Itar-Tass) — State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin consider rallies “an important component”.
At the same time, Naryshkin said, “The parliament is the major platform for a political dialogue.”
Commenting on the February 4 rallies in Moscow and other Russian cities, the Duma speaker said, “It is very good that the rallies were held in full compliance with legislation and that law and order was ensured.”
“Of course, the rallies became a significant element in our public life. Today Prime Minister Vladimir Putin pointed to this fact in his article.” “The rallies proved that no political force could have a monopoly on such values as freedom, justice and respect to human honour and dignity,” Naryshkin stressed.
“Rallies are, really, an important component of the political process and democracy. But it is necessary to remember that the parliament is the major platform for a political dialogue,” the speaker of the lower house said. “The inter-party dialogue becomes increasingly important,” he added.
