Press Release
August 7, 2010

Women topped YABLOKOs list of candidates for elections to the Legislative Assembly of the Chelyabinsk region scheduled on October 10. Such a decision was adopted by the regional conference of the party which took place on August 7.

Number one in YABLOKOs list is Natalya Mironova, a well-known ecologist, member of YABLOKOs Federal Council. Fatima Kobzhasarova, Chair of the Bashkirian Womens organization Fatikha, is listed the second. Number three is Galina Zaitzeva, peoples artist of Russia, professor of the Chaeyabinsk State Academy and Culture and Arts, head of the Chair of Vocal. We made it a special point that our three top candidates will not include the so-called locomotives, as well as representatives of the federal leadership of the party, Sergei Mitrokhin said after participating in the conference.

The conference also nominated Oleg Mukharlamov YABLOKOs candidate to the post of the head of Bredinskly District of the Chelyabinsk Region.

Answering a question from one of the delegates of the conference whether the party should participate in elections Sergei Mitrokhin said that boycott of elections is inadmissible. According to Mitrokhin, a boycott paralises civil initiative pushing towards rejection of any civil activity. Participation in the elections, despite all the manipulations and fraud, is the only way to influence them, making elections honest.

The election to the Legislative Assembly of the Chelyabinsk Region will take place on a single election day October 10.
