Press Release

YABLOKO collected 7,600 signatures in support of YABLOKOТs list required for registration in the election campaign to the regional Duma in the Ryazan region during the holiday period.

The list of candidates is topped by Chair of the regional party branch journalist Konstantin Smirnov, honoured teacher of the Russian Federation and deputy of the regional Duma of the second convocation Sergei Tabolin, deputy head of the party branch lawyer Dmitry Shatilov and teacher in the arts school for children Galina Vorotzova.

YABLOKO collected signatures in all the districts of the city of Ryazan, as well as in Rybnovsky, Sasovsky, Klepikovsky and Ryazan districts. The party also plans to continue collection of signatures in other municipal entities.

Campaigning among workers of the social sphere demonstrated considerable difficulties. УDespite the fact that there are many party advocates of YABLOKO among this social layer, many of them fear to sign for YABLOKO noting, for example, that the director of their school made them join the progovernmental United Russia party,Ф said Konstantin Smitnov, Chair of the Ryazan branch of YABLOKO. УThis is not surprising, considering how toughly the regional authorities pressed the budget sphere workers at the recent elections,Ф he added.

YABLOKO, the Just Cause and the Patriots of Russia out of the total of seven parties planning to run in the campaign have to collect signatures.
