MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) - Igor Novikov, the former head of the MAKS air show, will run for the mayor of the town of Zhukovsky, near Moscow, from the Civil Platform party of businessman Mikhail Prokhorov. The decision was made by the party’s regional branch at a conference on Thursday, Civil Platform’s press service reports.
The party was created in the summer of 2012.
Igor Novikov was director of MAKS air shows and the general director of the Aviasalon joint-stock company. He already ran for the mayor of Zhukovsky in 2009 but lost to his rival by inconsiderable number of votes.
Early mayoral elections will take place in Zhukovsky on March 31. Alexander Bobovnikov, the former mayor who had held office since 2000, stepped down late in January.
