“Fair Russia”, CPRF and LDPR pre-agreed on single candidates for nomination to the gubernatorial elections that will be held in September. This was announced by the leader spravorossov Sergey Mironov on air of TV channel “Russia 24” on Tuesday, March 28.
“If to speak about “Fair Russia”, I call three of the region’s Sverdlovsk region Alexander Burkov, the Yaroslavl oblast — Anatoly Greshnevikov, the Republic of Karelia Irina Petelava”, — said the politician. He noted that it was “powerful candidates who can and the second round to do and win.”
The liberal democratic party, according to Mironov, tentatively decided to nominate Alexander Sherina for the post of head of the Ryazan region Alexei Didenko — in the Tomsk region. The Communists, in turn, offer Vyacheslav Marhaeva as a candidate in the elections in the Republic of Buryatia and Sergey Mamayev in the Kirov region, said the leader of the socialist party.
In his opinion, the nomination of single candidates will allow candidates from non-parliamentary parties to freely pass the municipal filter.
Earlier Monday, the CEC Chairman, Ella Pamfilova said that the so-called municipal filter that requires candidates for Governor to collect signatures of local deputies and heads of municipal entities could be simplified. She noted that this initiative is supported by almost all parties.
March 9, Mironov said that just Russia has offered the leadership of the liberal democratic party and the Communist party to nominate a single candidate at the gubernatorial elections. In the fall of 2017 heads of regions will choose in 14 subjects of the Federation.
