MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) - The leader of the opposition party Yabloko, Sergei Mitrokhin, has refuted medial allegations that his party is in consultations with some other organizations about possible boycott of elections of the Moscow city mayor.
“It is a blatant disinformation. Sure, we shall take part in the elections of the mayor, and will be the party’s candidate,” Mitrokhin told Itar-Tass.
According to the Yabloko leader, whereas consultations are concerned, these will be consultations “regarding the collections of signatures” to register him as a candidate.
“As for the boycott, Yabloko is categorically against it,” he stressed.
According to media reports, the Yabloko party, the leader of the Opposition Coordination Council, Alexei Navalny, the coordinator of the Left Front, Sergei Udaltsov, and the leader of the Civil Platform party, Mikhail Prokhorov, are allegedly negotiating a possible boycott of the elections.
