"Other Russia" will not participate in the 2007 parliamentary elections

July 8 2007

The opposition coalition The Other Russia "should not participate in the election, legitimizing the power of acting in the country. Instead, the opposition should hold an alternative presidential and parliamentary elections. About this at the conference "Another Russia", said economist Andrei Illarionov. According to him, "participation in the alternative elections will show who the presidential candidate really intends to fight for change in the situation in the country, and who is only in order to keep warm," reported

Statement by Mr Illarionov has caused considerable surprise among journalists and some of the more sane members of the conference. After the sentence "the economist" means only one thing - "Other Russia" refuses to be in the public policy field. In recent history, Russia has already been precedents when some thrown on the margins of political power to create so-called "shadow" cabinet, chose the president, handed out their own positions, etc. Not so long ago within the "Other Russia" was born on an instrument that has been painted in public office if he wins the coalition's parliamentary and presidential elections.

Thus, the leaders of the "Other Russia" pre-signed for his own impotence, and, abandoning the real struggle, surrendered dreams of how it would be nice if they took power.
