MOSCOW, March 5 (Itar-Tass) —— A Just Russia party's leader, one of the presidential candidates, Sergei Mironov spoke out against "rally passions" and called for real reforms in the country.
“The sooner the rally passions calm down the better. We must work and carry out the real reforms," he said at a press conference on Monday.
The politician also urged to reject "the language of confrontation". "It is unacceptable if we make people clash again. We need to begin working together," he said.
The country has much work to do. First of all, a law on the constitutional assembly must be adopted. A referendum must be prepared to change the Constitution to redistribute excessive presidential powers to the parliament, he said.
Mironov admitted the results of the presidential elections, which were won by Vladimir Putin in the first round, were clear to him. Citizens voted to have "a bird in the hands rather than in the sky" (better to have little than nothing). However, Mironov believes the result must not lead to further stagnation, as people wait for real social reforms.
"We will continue making the authorities work for the good of the voters. Our left social democratic ideas are needed. The thought was confirmed also by Vladimir Putin himself today in a telephone conversation,” Just Russia's leader said.
The party leader does not rule out that his party may unite with the Communists. "It is a matter of the near future," he believes.
