MOSCOW, March 14 (Itar-Tass) – Gennady and Dmitry Gudkov, expelled from A Just Russia on Wednesday, said they would set up a new political party.
"If the Party Congress does not disavow the decision /on expulsion/, we'll set up our own party and invite A Just Russia members to join," Gennady Gudkov told a news conference on Thursday.
He said the work to establish the new party would begin later on Thursday or on Friday. "November 7 would be a good date for the founding Congress," he remarked.
Earlier, Gudkov repeatedly hinted he was set to create his own political force. In early 2013, he said he was conducting consultations over establishing a Civil Union.
Since the election blocs are banned and an election victory can only be secured by consolidating the Opposition, such consultations are underway with the participation of the Coordinating Council of the Opposition. Gudkov declined to tell whom the consultations involved.
Last April, Gudkov called for creating the Leftist Alliance socio-democratic movement, with an objective to the establish a unified leftist party.
