MOSCOW, January 10./ITAR-TASS/. The Republican Party of Russia - People's Freedom Party (RPR-PARNAS) plans to finalise the inner party discussion on disputes at a meeting of its federal political council due on February 8, the council’s member Valentina Melnikova said in an interview with Itar-Tass on Friday.
“A meeting of the federal political council is scheduled for February 8, and most probably there we shall discuss the situation in the party, the results of the discussion on the emerged disputes,” she said. “The disputes referred to cooperation with nationalists, about how far it may go.”
“We also lack a common understanding of the work of regional branches, which are expecting assistance, including financial one, from the party leaders,” she continued. “Trust between various parts of the party is lost, and it should be restored.”
Another key issue of the discussion is cooperation with the federal authorities, Melnikova said.
“The party should have a high status at the federal level. If the regions see the party is playing a role at the federal level, it would be easier for the party to be working in the regions.”
In late December, a group of the federal political council’s members published a letter, stating a crisis in the party and suggested restoring the Republican Party of Russia. RPR-PARNAS’ co-chair Boris Nemtsov stated then an attempt to split the party and promised to be fighting it. His colleague Vladimir Ryzhkov disclaimed a split stating the party continued “a tough discussion.”
RPR-PARNAS was organised in June 2012 as a merger of the Republican Party of Russia and the Party of People’s Freedom. Vladimir Ryzhkov, Boris Nemtsov and Mikhail Kasyanov were elected its co-chairs.
