MOSCOW, October 19 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian opposition’s Coordinating Council has ceased to exist. The meeting, which was scheduled for Saturday, was supposed to be the last one due to expiration of the term. However, the meeting never happened because of a lack of quorum. Only nine of its 40 members were present. Two others were prepared to participate in the meeting online.
Sergei Davidis, who was supposed to chair the meeting, told Itar-Tass “the day of elections to the new council is not fixed yet.”
He suggested the Council had a “private meeting.”
“Since the agenda does not include topics, which may require a quorum,” he told participants in the meeting. “Still, we should exchange views and put a full stop.”
The Coordinating Council was elected on October 21, 2012 for the term of one year. The online voting featured 82,153 Internet users.
