MOSCOW, June 10 (Itar-Tass) - Former minister of economy in Yegor Gaidar’s government Andrei Nechayev does not rule out his nomination as a candidate at the Moscow mayoral elections, which are set for September 8, 2013.
“I will sooner nominate, counting on a possibility to agree on a common candidate at the stage of signup campaign,” he told Itar-Tass on Monday. “I am a supporter of the parties, which participated in the consultations to create a coalition at the elections to the Moscow City Duma, will nominate a common candidate (for the post of the Moscow mayor). But since (chairman of the Yabloko Party) Sergei Mitrokhin and (blogger) Alexei Navalny already stated about their intentions to nominate, now the only chance is the talks at the stage of signup campaign and who will succeed to gather them,” Nechayev added. In his words, the consultations on this issue will begin on June 12.
Andrei Nechayev heads the Civil Initiative Party, which the Justice Ministry registered.
