is a possibility the United Russia party may support a presidential candidate not affiliated with any political party
There is a possibility the United Russia party may support a presidential candidate not affiliated with any political party, the State Duma’s first deputy speaker, Oleg Morozov, told a news conference on Monday. As he answered reporters’ questions, Morozov, a member of the United Russia General Council’s Presidium, said that there were no effective restrictions that might prevent the head of state from being a member of this or that political party. “Everything depends on the person’s wish,” Morozov said. At the same time he recalled that all participants in the latest presidential election were representatives of political parties and demonstrated their political affiliations. “Growing presence of political parties in the bodies of power is an objective process,” he said. Morozov believes that “the party might enter into consultations with the president over candidates for the prime minister’s post.” About the mechanism of forming the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Morozov said it might be a good idea to allow both executive and legislative bodies of power in Russia’s constituent territories to nominate their candidates, on the condition, though, the persons had been approved by the local population. “There would be no elections, but some procedure of coordinating nominees with the local people,” he said. In reply to a question from Itar-Tass Morozov said that United Russia was firm in its intention to stick to what some have called the “youth quota” in the elections in Russia’s nine regions due on October 7. At the latest meeting of the United Russia General Council’s Presidium two party tickets compiled in violation of the “youth quota principle” were rejected. Recently United Russia made a decision no fewer than 20 percent of candidates on its party tickets should be under 28 years of age.
