MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Mikhail Prokhorov, a multimillionaire, the leader of the Right Cause Party, has announced his intention to invite Alla Pugacheva, a famous pop singer, to join their party. According to his information, she could handle questions connected with the position of women in Russia. Pugacheva accepted the invitation. Experts doubt that the rating of Right Cause will be improved with the help of Pugacheva. The opponents of the party point to the fact that Prokhorov is following the example of United Russia, which invites popular actors and athletes to join it.
The Kommersant reminds that Pugacheva did not join any of the political parties so far. In 1996 she took part in the electoral campaign of Boris Yeltsin and supported United Russia during the electoral campaign before the previous parliamentary elections.
The rival parties denounced Pugacheva’s decision, The Kommersant writes. “Prokhorov is following into the steps of United Russia. He realises that right-wing ideas are not popular in the country. This is why he is inviting popular singers, athletes and actors. He has enough money for purchasing the whole of United Russia,” said Igor Lebedev, the leader of the faction of the Liberal Democratic Party in the Duma. “This is a regular PR-action. I do not think Pugacheva will really take up politics. Many popular athletes and singers were elected to the Duma, who used to stay away from parliamentary sessions,” said Sergey Obukhov, secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, deputy to the State Duma.
