MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The A Just Russia party on Thursday expelled two members, lawmakers Alexei Mitrofanov and Nikolai Lakutin, who voted for the candidature of Dmitry Medvedev to be appointed to the post of Russian prime minister in the Russian State Duma lower parliament house on May 8, despite the party’s decision to vote against.

The A Just Russia party leader, Sergei Mironov, wrote in his Twitter blog that Mitrofanov had been expelled unanimously, while two members of the party’s bureau abstained from voting in respect of Lakutin.

Earlier, Mitrofanov and Lakutin, along with two other lawmakers, Leonid Levin and Dhamaladin Gasanov, who also voted in favour Medvedev, were barred from work in the party’s Duma faction.

One more formal member of the A Just Russia faction, Igor Zotov, violated the party’s ban to vote for Medvedev on May 8, although he had been sent packing from the party a month before.
