The possibility of early change of the composition of the governing bodies of Parnassus voiced at the Congress in 2015, about specific permutations premature, said Chairman of the opposition party Mikhail Kasyanov. Earlier, some party members called for his resignation. The Congress party will hold until the end of 2016.
“I think (the change of leadership in Congress) will be discussed. I talked about this a year ago, in July 2015, when I was elected Chairman of the party, the political Council, of 29 people and three Vice-presidents. I then announced that although we elect for four years, the situation in the country changes so fast that the Congress will be held much earlier”, – quotes the politician “Interfax”.
Previously a member of Bureau of Federal political Council, lawyer Vadim Prokhorov , saidthat Kasyanov “100% perform” at the party Congress with call to unite closely around the leadership. According to Prokhorov, Kasyanov wants to get rid of inner-party opponents – him, Deputy Chairman of the party Ilya Yashin, coordinator of the “Open Russia” Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr., and leader of the St. Petersburg branch of Parnas Andrei Pivovarov.
For presentation at the Congress party PARNAS of the issue about resignation of Mikhail Kasyanov, there is no objective reason, says his Deputy Merzlikin. “This is the vision of a situation by Vadim Prokhorov. So far it looks exactly commented on this statement Merzlikin. – If Prokhorov doesn’t like a party where the majority has taken such a position, well, then he needs to make some decisions for themselves. The idea is that it needs to call for political responsibility of the majority of the Congress which took a decision. I have a feeling that there is no objective reason to consider this question”.
He added that he “does not understand” the meaning of the question Prokhorov and asked him to leave the party: “Well, to go, to create another party that is more in line with his interests and ideas,” said Merzlikin.
During the September 18 elections to the state Duma the party PARNAS received 0,73% of the vote and are unable to spend to the state Duma any candidate. After that, the party began a sharp controversy about the reasons for the defeat.
