The Rodina faction launches negotiations with the KPRF on the formation of the coordination council in the State Duma
Its purpose is to coordinate actions of opposition factions. "We held preliminary consultations with KPRF representatives on Saturday," leader of the Rodina faction Dmitry Rogozin told a press conference on Monday. Undoubtedly, the result will be positive, he said adding that talks with KPRF leader Gennady Zyuganov would take place on Monday. Rodina suggests holding weekly consultations with the KPRF faction and use "other methods of parliamentary struggle", Mr. Rogozin said. According to him, the Rodina-KPRF interaction is spontaneous so far. The Rodina party (the former Party of Russian Regions) was founded in 1998. Today it has 59 regional branches and about 29,000 members. Representatives of youth and student organizations, regional trade unions, small and middle-sized business associations and scientific organizations founded the party. In September 2003 Rodina initiated a joint conference with the Socialist United Party of Russia (Spiritual Heritage) and the People's Will Party. Then a decision was made to set up the Rodina bloc to participate in the State Duma elections on December 7, 2003. The Rodina bloc won 9% of votes (5.5 million people) at the elections. The Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF) held its constitutive congress in March 1993. The party adheres to the ideas of socialism and sovereignty of the people, formation of planned market economy, and conclusion of a new interstate treaty between the CIS member-states and comes out against Russia's capitalization. The party has 500,000 members. The Rodina faction in the State Duma comprises 38 people (8.44% of deputies) and the KPRF faction - 51 people (11.33%).
