MOSCOW, December 15, (ITAR-TASS). The Social Democratic Party, which is led by former deputy of the State Duma lower house of Russian parliament Gennady Gudkov, is prepared to cooperate with the Yabloko Party, the Green Alliance - People’s Party and the People’s Alliance led by opposition figurehead Aleksey Navalny, Gudkov told reporters before the opening of a founding congress of the party of Russian Social Democrats in the Russian capital.
“We are holding the consultations with the Green Alliance - People’s Party and other parties and we are even debating the founding of a coalition party,” he said. “The Greens are our natural allies, because the Social Democrats call for affordable housing, affordable education and medical services and the high level of ecological safety,” Gennady Gudkov added.
“We would like to have an alliance with other parties,” the former deputy noted. “The consultations are underway with Yabloko and Navalny’s party over the elections in the Moscow City Duma,” he said. “It is important that different candidates from the opposition will not be the rivals at the elections. We have some ideological disagreement with Navalny, but the social democracy is a social doctrine and democracy. From the point of view of democracy we have no disagreement with Navalny,” the leader of a new party said, noting that his party called for “a constitutional reform of the state political governing system.”
Gennady Gudkov also noted that deputies of the State Duma Dmitry Gudkov and Ilya Ponomarev will be included in the coordinating bodies of the party. “We have the examples, when the politicians head the parties, not being members of these parties,” Gennady Gudkov recalled.
