Political scientists: a rotation in the leadership of “United Russia” will save her from the image of the “party officials”


MOSCOW, 6 February./TASS/. Rotation in the governing bodies of “United Russia” will allow her to rid of the image of the “party officials” and to attract new electoral group. This opinion was expressed Saturday political analysts.

“This is unique to United Russia event, since United Russia is largely associated with the party of bureaucrats and officials. Now, if we look at the list of those who entered the senior Council and General Council, it is largely public figures, activists, representatives of civil society, and this essentially changes the image of the party,” said political analyst Pavel Danilin.
