Lugovoi called for tougher requirements for candidates for President of Russia
There has been talk that Grudinina there is real estate outside of Russia, and accounts abroad. And it seems like someone from the family has a residence permit, — said the newspaper VIEW Duma Deputy Andrei Lugovoi. In his opinion, during the next presidential campaign, these candidates will not be able to register.
A member of the Duma Committee for security and combating corruption, the former intelligence officer Andrei Lugovoi said that during current election campaign has become an important question about the requirements that must be met by the candidate that voters had no doubt about him.
“It’s about Pavel Grudinin. There has been talk that Grudinina there is real estate outside of Russia, and accounts abroad. And it seems like someone from the family has a residence permit. It’s about the fact that we have laws according to which any municipal official before to hold the position, must pass a number serious checks. It has the requirements to have accounts abroad. In the case of presidential candidates such requirements are not presented and, of course, nonsense,” said Lugovoi.
According to him, citizens of Russia it is not very clear if “we will see a conflict of interest.” According to him, the main factor of access to election campaigns should be the presence or absence of the candidate material relations with other States, “and it accounts abroad and other tangible assets.” “To stand at the head of the state and thus have a financial dependence on another state — it is not very correctly”, — said the Deputy. In his opinion, during the next election campaign of such candidates will not be able to register.
