MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is planning to have meetings with the leadership of registered political parties, which have and which do not have mandates in the State Duma, within this month, the Kremlin press service reported on Wednesday.
Medvedev is also expected to meet with representatives of political forces that seek to register their parties in the future, a high-ranking official said. The meetings will focus on the political reform of the country, the official added.
“The major topic to be raised by the head of state is the political reform on the basis of the proposals put forth by the president in the nationwide address to the Federal Assembly – draft laws on the registration of political parties and a new procedure for electing governors. These documents have been submitted to the State Duma,” the official said.
“The December 4 parliamentary elections and the latest rallies will not be on the agenda of the meetings,” he said.
“The meetings will be attended by those who want and are ready to discuss the president’s political initiatives,” the Kremlin official noted.
Commenting on the list of invitees made public by certain mass media, the official said it was timely to talk about it.
