MOSCOW, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - The All-Russia People’s Front was not created to replace United Russia or any other party, but as an instrument to form the broadest coalition of citizens to achieve goals supported by the overwhelming majority of Russians, Federation Council speaker Valentina Matviyenko said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The All-Russia People’s Front was established “as a public movement, a force capable of uniting the whole nation and of translating into life the will of all Russian citizens, as a structure that is ready to work with those who take responsibility for our motherland’s historic success,” she said.
“The mission of the All-Russia People’s Front is to provide an opportunity for all citizens of our country to set their national tasks and seek their fulfillment, to directly put forward their initiatives that later will be translated into laws and governmental solutions,” Matviyenko said.
The speaker also highlighted the Front’s active work on such vital issues as social justice. “For instance, the Front participated in drafting a bill on the so-called golden parachutes restricting payments to senior managers of state corporations,” she said. “Amendments to the bill regarding a luxury car tax that allowed to put cars costing from 3 million to 5 million roubles on the list of luxury ones, were submitted.”
Matviyenko expressed confidence that the All-Russia People’s Front has big prospects ahead.
“At present, I would not speak about plans for my participation in the movement because of my too busy schedule at my principal place of employment - at the Federation Council as well as at the Supreme Council of United Russia,” she said.
