MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. Russia’s opposition has agreed to field candidates on a single list in 2016 elections to the lower house of parliament, the State Duma, former MP Gennady Gudkov said on Wednesday.
The meeting of the opposition leaders that approved the decision on coordinating actions ended at night.
"The discussion focused on fielding a single list in the elections to the State Duma in 2016. There is a preliminary agreement," Gudkov said without detailing the particular party. "This is still premature," the politician explained.
The ex-lawmaker said the meeting was attended by Alexey Navalny of the unregistered Party of Progress, Mikhail Kasyanov of the RPR-Parnas party, lawmaker Dmitry Gudkov, former economy minister in Yegor Gaidar's government Andrey Nechayev, former co-chairman of RPR-Parnas Vladimir Ryzhkov and the leader of the Democratic Choice, Vladimir Milov.
"We have agreed to coordinate our actions and this meeting will be held on a regular basis and I hope that at least once in a month and also [more often] if needed," Gudkov said.
"This is not a closed club, and we hope that other opposition forces will join us, including the Yabloko party, and they are still thinking about this," the politician said.
