MOSCOW, February 9 (Itar-Tass) — Sergei Mironov - a presidential candidate from Just Russia party, believes "it is realistic that the future president might be elected in the first round of the election," Mironov declared at a meeting with the PACE delegation on Thursday.
Mironov stressed that “he is running for presidency in order to win, rather than merely take part." Mironov promised full scale reforms if elected president, he said.
All the candidates for the Russian presidency ought to be interested in a legitimate presidential campaign and honest vote counting, he said. "We have hope, but no confidence," Mironov noted.
Mironov reminded of the demands Just Russia party proclaimed - to cancel early voting and absentee ballots, which the party believes "are the main instruments for falsifications," he said. Mironov also expressed a positive attitude to a decision to install web cameras at all polling stations.
