Brewers is charged with unlawful access to personal data after the election campaign in Kostroma in the summer of 2015. Probably, its inclusion in the election the top three will be a guarantee of his personal safety, suggested Yashin on Tuesday.

In addition, wrote Yashin, “was a recommendation not to include in election list the PARNASSUS Natalia Pelevin, where the majority of the members of the Bureau expressed political distrust.” “Her actions, according to the Bureau systematically applied to party political damage,” said Yashin. Pelevin appeared in the NTV film “Kasyanov day,” on April 1, which was shown her personal meetings with Kasyanov. After that Pelevin announced the suspension of membership in the political Council of the party. April 30, Yashin accused her of “sabotage, which was carried out from the inside”, which broke the prior intra-party voting.

The final decision on the composition of the electoral list PARNAS will take the Congress party, which presumably will take place on June 17-18.

The primaries of the democratic coalition were to determine the joint list of opposition candidates for the elections of the state Duma of 2016.

Fourth place went to head of the Moscow branch of the unregistered Party of progress Nikolai Laskin 1 thousand votes, the fifth — nationalist Alexander Belov (Potkin) with 900 votes.

Yashin also said Tuesday that several members of the party invited the Bureau of the party to make a recommendation to the Congress not to include in the list Maltsev “anti-Semitic statements”. However, the proposal received the required number of votes, said Yashin.
