Communist Party’s Pavel Grudinin to participate in presidential elections instead of Gennady Zyuganov
Today, a director of the Lenin State Farm Pavel Grudinin was nominated as a candidate for the presidential elections by the CPRF Congress. As a result of the secret ballot, supported by the majority Grudinin will participate in the elections.
‘’303 members of the party voted ‘for’ and 11 - ‘against’,’’ TASS quotes one of the Congress’ participants. In all, 316 people took part in the ballot.
Another presidential candidate was so determined - since the Communist Party is represented in the parliament, Pavel Grudinin does not need to collect signatures in order to be registered with the CEC.
