MOSCOW, May 26 (Itar-Tass) —— State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin was elected to the ruling United Russia party’s Supreme Council at its congress son Saturday, May 26.

The congress also amended the party charter allowing officials who are not party members to be elected to the Supreme Council. Previously this was allowed only for influential politicians who have been with the party for at least a year, except for persons for whom membership in a political party is limited by law.

Naryshkin said earlier that he had no plans to join United Russia.

He believes that a nonpartisan Duma speaker can better ensure interaction between factions.

“I said that I am member of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, I was elected to the State Duma from United Russia, but I am not a member of the party,” Naryshkin said.

“I believe that one of the main tasks of the Duma speaker at is point is to ensure effective inter-faction interaction and I think that a nonpartisan speaker can do it better,” he said.
