MOSCOW, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - The Civic Platform party will nominate head of the party’s Moscow office Mikhail Vyshegorodtsev for a commissioner on business affairs to be approved by acting Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
Vyshegorodtsev’s candidacy was determined after consultations in the party's leadership, Civic Platform leader and billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov said. “He is the head of the party’s Moscow party office, he knows Moscow well and he knows the problems of Moscow by his experience,” Prokhorov said in an interview with the TV channel Rossiya-1 on Friday.
Sobyanin stated earlier about his intention to appoint a Civic Platform representative as his business ombudsman in Moscow. “We introduced a new post in the city - a commissioner for business affairs. This post is vacant today and can be proposed to Civic Platform so that they will nominate a candidate for the post, and I would support it with pleasure,” he said.
Civic Platform leader Mikhail Prokhorov accepted the proposal from Sobyanin, noting that it came “at a proper organization, because the Civic Platform party is probably the most high-numbered ‘guard of business’” in the country. “We pin our hopes on active, creatively thinking people and are prepared to use any opportunity to help the business,” he noted.
