RYAZAN, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - Leader of the Civic Platform party Mikhail Prokhorov expects the results of the forthcoming regional election due in the Ryazan region on September 8 to be no worse than his own result in the presidential polls held in March 2012.
"The result will not be down my result in last year's presidential polls, although I would like it to be even better," Prokhorov declared.
Prokhorov would like his fellow citizens to accept the Civic Platform party as an alternative to the existing authorities. The September 8 election will show whether the people accept the Civic Platform as an alternative to the existing authorities, Prokhorov said.
Asked about his attitude to ONF (United People's Front) Prokhorov declared: "We fear no competition either from ONF or the United Russia party. Lets us respect things which other people do, then the others will respect us," Prokhorov said.
The Civic Platform has nominated a list of candidates who will take part in the election to the Ryazan regional Duma. The election will be held on September 8 - a common date set for voting in regional elections in Russia.
