STAVROPOL, January 25. /TASS/. The Kremlin has a positive attitude towards setting up new parties in Russia, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, commenting on reports about plans of business ombudsman Boris Titov to set up the party of business.
"The creation of political parties within the limits of the legislation is encouraged, the party diversity and competition between political parties is something that is supported. Of course, the platform on which the party will conduct its work, the line, the ideology of the party are important," Peskov said.
He added that "the whole issue of party construction and development of the country’s political system was quite positive."
Chief of staff of business ombudsman Boris Titov and vice-president of the Business Russia all-Russian public organization Tatyana Marchenko told TASS that Titov was going to lead the list of the right-wing party at the State Duma elections to be held in September. "Currently negotiations are underway with several parties, I will not name them now, perhaps, that would be wrong, but all of these are right-wing parties," she said.
Titov has served as Commissioner for Entrepreneurs’ Rights since June 2012. Besides, he is the co-chairman of Business Russia. He also owns the Abrau Durso winemaking company together with his son Pavel Titov.
