MOSCOW, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Irina Prokhorova was named to head Russia’s Civic Platform party, replacing her brother and Russian business tycoon Mikhail Prokhorov at the post.
The Federal Civil Committee of the party has decided to introduce the annual rotation of party functionaries at the governing posts of the party at a behind-closed-doors meeting earlier on Friday. The decision has taken effect from Friday, December 20.
Following the vote, Prokhorov became the party’s leader and head of the Federal Civil Committee. At the same time, Mikhail Prokhorov remains the head of the Federal Political Committee.
The initiative to hold an annual complete rotation of governing bodies of the party was put forward by Mikhail Prokhorov in October. He explained that it would make the policies of the party less predictable for the authorities. “We were too frank, but now we will be cannier and less predictable for the government,” the leader of the Civic Platform said. He added that the full rotation of the party’s leadership would help avoid becoming an “autocratic party”.
