MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow branch of United Russia Party elected Irina Belykh its new secretary.
At the party conference, her candidature was supported by the majority of 149 votes.
Irina Belykh said she would pay special attention to organisation of work in primary divisions of the party.
“They are not the lowest level, they are the main level,” she said.
Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, who was the branch’s secretary since March of 2011, said on Saturday that he planned to focus on the work at the party’s Supreme Council. He congratulated Belykh with “the new serious and responsible position.”
Sobyanin stressed there are many problems to be solved in Moscow.
“Nothing is more important than involving millions of Muscovites in this work,” he said.
The conference also elected 150 members of the Political Council.
