SPS and Yabloko have sent representatives to the United States to open a coalitional mission there
Russian liberal parties The Union of Right Forces (SPS) and Yabloko have sent representatives to the United States to open a coalitional mission there. "Our main objective is that the voice of the Russian democratic opposition be heard in Washington," Vladimir Kara-Murza, the newly appointed plenipotentiary of SPS in the U.S., said Friday. He said the move paved the way for a dual-party coalition. "The establishment of the mission is an essential prerequisite for our coalition in the Moscow State Duma [the city parliament's lower house] elections, scheduled for December 4, which will be an important step on the way to parliamentary and presidential elections [in 2007 and 2008 respectively]," Kara-Murza said. Co-chairman of the mission from Yabloko Andrei Piontkovsky said the mission would seek to inform the Russian and American public in the U.S. on the parties' election platforms. He said he hoped the mission would obtain the support of the Russian Embassy in Washington. SPS and Yabloko failed to cross the 5% threshold needed to win parliamentary seats in the 2003 election.
