MOSCOW, July 26 (Itar-Tass) - Branches of the All-Russia People’s Front have been organised in the country’s 20 regions, and before autumn they will be in every other region, Co-Chair of the organisation’s Central Headquarters Olga Timofeyeva said on Friday.
“The Front is represented in Russia’s 20 territories and regions. Local branches have been organised in Saratov and Stavropol, in Karachay-Cherkessia, Samara, Novosibirsk and other regions. Before end of August, conferences will take place in the country’s every other region,” she said.
Timofeyeva confirmed the information that the movement had been organising its branches mostly in the regions, which would not have major elections in September.
“The reason for the decision of the kind is that the Front is a public force, which is not going to influence the political situations in the regions or to become whoever’s advantage. Clearly, a movement headed by the president is a strong competitive advantage for any candidate.”
“Immediately after the elections, we shall organise branches in the country’s all regions,” and the work is due by the yearend, she said.
The All-Russia People’s Front had its constituent congress on June 11-12 in Moscow. The congress elected President Vladimir Putin the movement’s leader.
