MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Leader of A Just Russia Sergei Mironov does not see as yet major reasons for excluding from the party Gennady Gudkov.
“As yet, there are no actions which would let us discuss excluding of Gennady Gudkov, and I hope they will not be,” Mironov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Mironov continued saying that Gudkov, whose street activity he as the leader of the party had criticised a week earlier already “has not done anything which may be considered as political damage to the party.”
“As for the fact that he /Gennady Gudkov/ makes criticizing statements regarding me /Sergei Mironov/ - this is our normal party discussion, and it is not a reason for an excluding. He is sure that rallies are correct things – this is his point of view. I believe it necessary to insist on adopting laws by the State Duma, not to run from rally to rally. This is my point of view. We simply differ in views,” Mironov said.
“If Gennady Gudkov, like Ilya Ponomarev, would like to be the party members and if they realise they need it, this would mean they would be the party members,” he added. “If they decide otherwise, they will file applications.”
