MOSCOW, February 17 (Itar-Tass) — Leader of Just Russia Sergei Mironov is certain that “positive changes” will inevitably occur in the country after the presidential election.
“If positive reforms are not carried out, whoever becomes president, will not remain president for a long time, and the country will get out of control. Positive changes are inevitable both in the social sphere and politics,” he said on Friday in an online interview with the Internet publication Gazeta.ru.
According to him, this also concerns Vladimir Putin. “If he tries to pretend that nothing needs to be changed, my forecast - he just will not stay in the office for six years,” Mironov said.
“I am absolutely convinced of the inevitability of changes. We will have to, gritting our teeth, to conduct both the political and social, economic and judicial reforms. Otherwise the country will plunge into mayhem,” he said.
He predicted that some changes may begin even before the presidential election. “Some expectations have appeared,” he made an intriguing remark. “Perhaps we all will manage to agree on how to secure fair elections.” Mironov claims that all will be involved in these agreements “both the Bolotnaya (square rally) and Poklonnaya (Gora rally participants) and Putin’s representative, and representatives of all parties.”
“We have now an emergency situation. And there is some consensus on the formulation of rules, which are not fixed in the law. We do not have time to change the law, the election commission’s membership. But if we all agree on some rules to do this or that and not to do that, we all will sign them and will comply with them, and there will be no possibility to say that somebody has falsified something. But we’ll see. If we manage to agree, there will be one scenario, and if not – another,” the party leader concluded.
