YEKATERINBURG, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - Yevgeny Roizman, head of the City Without Drugs Foundation, who has been nominated for the mayor of Yekaterinburg from billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov’s Civil Platform will get his election programme ready within ten days after his official registration as a mayoral candidate.
“The programme will be ready within ten days after registration,” Roizman told the press in Yekaterinburg on Sunday, July 21.
It will focus on problems in the housing and utilities sector, the quality of roads, security in the streets, and education.
Roizman stressed that he would consult many specialists on these and other issues.
He said that he had made the decision to compete for the post of mayor on his own, without any influence from Civil Platform and Prokhorov and made it clear that he would run his campaign without the billionaire’s financial assistance.
“There will be no funding from Prokhorov. We will do it on our own,” Roizman said, adding that regional entrepreneurs, who have been “strangled by the local authorities”, are willing to provide funding.
Roizman said his main competitor in the election is the incumbents. “I know personally everyone who has been nominated. If I saw a worthy candidate among them, I would not have run myself and I would have supported him,” he said.
