The "Yabloko" party has decided to participate in the impending presidential elections in Russia, said Yabloko's leader Grigory Yavlinksy at a press-conference this Wednesday.
Yavlinsky also stated that the question of "who is going to be the candidate from the democratic parties - is the question of democratic procedures".
"Our democratic candidate has always been Grigory Yavlinsky," noted Yabloko's deputy leader Sergei Ivanenko. Although he did not rule out the possibility of other democratic parties participating in the presidential elections and stated Yabloko's willingness to collaborate with them.
Yavlinsky said, that there is going to be a conference between various democratic parties and civil organisations after the State Duma elections (scheduled for December 7). At the conference the participants will decide on the common platform for their candidate at the presidential elections.
