MOSCOW, March 20 (Itar-Tass) —— Businessman, former presidential candidate Mikhail Prokhorov has announced a contest to select heads of regional organizations of the new party he plans to form within the next three to four months.
A questionnaire for applicants was posted on his website. The main criteria in the selection of the future regional leaders are not only “their successful professional activity but also successful experience of significant public, political, cultural, environmental or social projects.”
The establishment of the new party “is a very thorough work, and haste is not only unnecessary but also harmful,” Prokhorov wrote in his appeal to supporters.
He confirmed plans to form the party’s organizing committee in mid-April and to appeal for the party registration at the Justice Ministry. “A founding congress will be held a month after that, and regional meeting will follow,” he said.
“The party registration will take no less than three to four months even under the new rules,” he noted. “It is impossible to hold any regional constituent conferences before the general constituent congress.”
Prokhorov said the period would be sufficient for the selection of leaders of regional organizations of the party. “We will start up a number of important non-party programs simultaneously. They will be announced soon,” he said.
Almost 84,000 people have applied for joining the Prokhorov party. He said he wanted the party to be totally different from existent organizations and to unite active and free people who care about the future of the country and can put forward initiatives.
