MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Civil Platform Party leader, billionaire-turned-politician Mikhail Prokhorov, accepted on Thursday an invitation of Moscow’s Acting Mayor Sergei Sobyanin to appoint a party representative as Moscow’s ombudsman for entrepreneurs’ rights.

“I shall be honest with you to say this offer was a bit unexpected for me. Nevertheless, I believe that constructive work of different forces on Moscow’s political floor is exactly a characteristic of civilized modern policy,” Prokhorov told NTV television on Thursday.

“I believe this offer comes to the right place, as Civil Platform Party is maybe the most numerous ‘guard of businessmen’ on this floor,” he said. “We put stakes on active and creative people, and we are ready to use any opportunity to help business,” the billionaire businessman said.

On Wednesday, Sobyanin said he intended to cooperate with representatives of different political parties. In particular, he offered the position of ombudsman for entrepreneurs’ rights to a Civil Platform Party member.

“We have a new position in the city - commissioner for entrepreneurs. It is vacant, and we could offer Civil Platform to nominate their candidacy, and I would gladly support the candidate,” the acting Moscow mayor said.

He noted that it would be not only a good sign, but also real cooperation that would be to the good of small and medium-sized businesses, as well as the city on the whole.

“Civil Platform is a well-known party that enjoys certain respect, particularly among business people and entrepreneurs. We are ready to cooperate with it,” Sobyanin stressed.
