MOSCOW, June 27. /TASS/. Russia’s ruling United Russia party will nominate its candidates in 207 one-seat constituencies, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Monday at a meeting of the party’s Supreme and General Councils.

"In all, United Russia will nominate its candidates in 207 one-seat constituencies and, naturally, victory in each of them is important for us," he said.

He said the party has decided not to nominate its candidates in a number of such constituencies due to "clear political reasons." "Our party is strong and it claims the majority of seats. So, we should not take decisions that may entail certain problems in future. We have a good strength reserve," he said.

The party’s election tickets will include heads of 19 Russian regions - nine governors and ten heads of republics, including Dagestan’s North Ossetia’s, Chechnya’s and Crimea’s heads, Ramazan Abdulatipov, Vyacheslav Bitarov, Ramzan Kadyrov and Sergei Aksyonov, respectively, as well as Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and Moscow region governor Andrei Vorobyov. This decision is to be endorsed by the party’s congress on Monday.

Party tickets in regional groups may also be topped by head of the republic of Bashkortostan Ristem Khamitov, Tyumen region governor Vladimir Yakushev, St. Petersburg governor Georgy Poltavchenko, and Belgorod region governor Yevgeny Savchenko.
