MOSCOW, September 19 (Itar-Tass World Service) — Russian newspapers continue to discuss the reasons behind the resignation of billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov from the post of chairman of the Right Cause party. Himself, Prokhorov stated "the main reason behind the Party split" might have been the new leaders' wish to control the Party's funds.
On Thursday, new acting Chairman of Right Cause Andrei Dunayev assured that the money Mikhail Prokhorov had contributed would be returned to him, the "RBK Daily" writes. "We don't want another man’s property," he stated at the congress at the International Business Center. But something changed in his world outlook overnight, because the next day, Dunayev said that after a check of financial documents, the billionaire might find himself the Party's debtor. "We've found a wealth of unpaid bills, salaries, etc. Mikhail Dmitriyevich might owe us yet," he announced. Dunayev did not say how he had managed to detect Prokhorov's liability so fast.
On Monday, Mikhail Prokhorov will begin to dissolve his election headquarters, which operated independently from the Party's executive committee," the "Kommersant" reports. On Saturday, Prokhorov reminded that acting chairman of the Party, head of the executive committee Andrei Dunayev promised to return the money, although he did hint at "technical problems." Prokhorov said "technical problems" would certainly emerge. "Furthermore, specially trained persons are vigorously working to make sure these problems arise," the former Party leader said, "fake documents on unpaid works allegedly completed in the interests of the party will be shown in a few days. They are going to show contracts of lease and wage arrears. It's all too easily seen through." In Prokhorov's opinion, the desire to control the Party's till may become the main reason behind the split. The high ideals to serve the leadership are of secondary significance, he said.
