MOSCOW, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — The Republican Party of Russia — People’s Freedom Party (RPR—Parnas) has plans to cooperate with the Yabloko and Civic Platform parties at the elections in 2013, RPR-Parnas co-chairman Vladimir Ryzhkov said after a meeting of the party’s politburo on Monday.
“We have been discussing the party’s strategy that comprises two parts. First, the party will continue participating in the protest movement. Second, the party will take part in the elections of regional and local legislatures in September 2013,” Ryzhkov said.
The party is going to participate in elections in Russia’s 20 regions, specifically, in Ingushetia, the Stavropol Territory, Bashkiria, the Rostov, Irkutsk and Yaroslavl regions, and in the city of Yekaterinburg, he said.
“The party aims to take part in the elections of the Moscow regional governor but we have to make up an opposition coalition and that needs consultations,” Ryzhkov said.
A meeting of the RPR-Parnas Federal Political Council is scheduled for November 24. The party’s strategy of struggle for the political reform is on the agenda of the meeting.
