“But I’m the party announced that in the beginning of the list will have only one my name. I am the leader of the party, I’m bringing the whole team into battle, but when we get our interest, if they are good, I’ll take only one mandate, and nine others will go to the regional group. I am showing that we do not need some public people who are not in the party. We have enough powerful their candidates, ” – said Mironov.
