MOSCOW, June 10 (Itar-Tass) - The Liberal Democratic Party /LDPR/ said it will resolve the migrants' problem in the Russian capital and protect Muscovites' rights to "normal employment" if it wins the mayoral election on September 8.
It is one of the key points in the program unveiled by deputy head of the LDPR faction in parliament Vladimir Ovsyannikov on Monday.
A conference of the Moscow branch of the LDPR on June 15 is expected to officially name him the LDPR candidate in the upcoming polls.
"It's necessary to fully take migrants off our hands in three years, offering the jobs they now have to Muscovites and residents of other Russian regions. Moscow is overpopulated, hence problems with sanitary conditions, diseases, half-poisoned air, lack of housing, traffic jams and perpetual stresses. It is necessity to legally limit permanent registration of the new arrivals in Moscow," the program said.
The LDPR official also promised to solve the "demographic issue" by supporting women. "An overwhelming majority of women often have two jobs. More than half of families break up; Moscow records more divorces than the national average. It's necessary to reduce the working day for women by at least one hour," Ovsyannikov said.
To combat criminals, the LDPR proposes to shut down all nightclubs, and to enhance the quality of education - to cancel the Single State Examination for Moscow schoolchildren.
Earlier in the day, the Communist Party of the Russian Federation /KPRF/ named first deputy chairman of the KPRF Central Committee Ivan Melnikov its candidate in Moscow's mayoral election.
"We held a conference, which nominated Ivan Melnikov the KPRF candidate. Deputy chairman of the KPRF Central Committee /Valery/ Rashkin and I support this decision," leader of the KPRF faction at Moscow legislature Andrei Klychkov said.
