KRASNOYARSK, March 25 (Itar-Tass) – The head of the Aban district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, where about 60 members of the United Russia Party, filed a collective request that they want to quit the party, decided to file resignation. He has made a statement to this effect for journalists on Monday.
This demarche was made only “to draw attention to the current situation in the Krasnoyarsk Territory,” chief of the Krasnoyarsk branch of the United Russia Party Valery Semenov told Itar-Tass before. In his words, he visited the Aban district, where an enlarged meeting of the United Russia political council was held, and all signees of the collective request notified the regional branch of the party that they are not going to quit the party.
‘The rebels’ explained their demarche to Semenov with their intention “to draw attention to the current situation in the territory.” In their words, this does not only undermines the activities of the party, but also their intention to put an end to a protracted conflict between several deputies of the local council and head of the Aban district Mikhail Krivitsky. “We see a personal conflict, which has been dragging out for two years. At first the deputies tried to achieve some result in the district council, then through the signup campaign among local residents. Now they are seeking to draw attention with their scandalous statement,” Semenov explained.
Meanwhile, the Prosecutor’s Office in the Krasnoyarsk Territory initiated the dissolution of the Aban district council of deputies. This step is caused by the absenteeism at the sessions of the council by a group of deputies and subsequently the lack of quorum that hampers to hold a legitimate session of the council of deputies.
