MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - Civil Platform leader Mikhail Prokhorov is not in talks over support for Opposition activists Alexei Navalny and Gennady Gudkov who are running for the posts of Moscow mayor and Moscow region governor, respectively," spokeswoman for the business tycoon Tatyana Kosobokova told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
Earlier, mass media outlets reported that Navalny and Gudkov were in talks with the billionaire.
"At present, no talks are in progress over support by Civil Platform in the election of Moscow mayor and Moscow region governor," Kosobokova said.
Earlier, Prokhorov withdrew from the Moscow mayoral election, underlining that his objective was the struggle for the Moscow Duma in the 2014 election. "The Party has a year to prepare for the election to the Moscow parliament," the billionaire said, "the post of mayor is yours, the Duma is ours. You've taken the post of mayor from us, we'll take the Duma from you," he promised.
Politicians and experts largely explained the move by Prokhorov's inability to meet, within a tight timeframe, the requirements of the law which bans candidates for elective jobs from having assets in foreign countries.
