MOSCOW, February 13 (Itar-Tass) — One of the founders of the Right Cause party announced on Monday that he decided to leave its ranks and restore the Democratic Party of Russia (DPR).
“Unfortunately, the Right Cause project did not meet expectations. I’ve decided to leave the party and supported the initiative of my colleagues to restore the Democratic Party of Russia that will turn 22 years in 2012,” he told reporters.
He noted that on February 12 the Democratic Party held its congress, where a decision was taken to revive the party structure.
The congress was initiated by Andrei Bogdanov Centre, an independent non-profit organization for the development of social technologies that succeeded the Democratic Party of Russia liquidated in 2008 to set up Right Cause.
The congress, in which 153 delegates from 51 regions took part, elected him as the party’s leader. Political council includes seven people.
At present, the party’s lawyers are preparing the documents for submission to the Ministry of Justice for registration. If the party is successfully registered, it will nominate its candidates for the elections to regional parliaments this fall.
