The Chairman of the Sverdlovsk branch of party «the Apple» Yury Pereverzev has declared resignation and withdrawal from the party in protest against the nomination for Governor of the region Yevgeny Roizman.

Previously, «Apple» reported that on 17 June, Yekaterinburg will host the party conference, which is expected to decide on the party candidate on elections of the Governor of Sverdlovsk region. As the main was named Chairman of the Yekaterinburg city Duma Yevgeny Roizman.

«I resigned Chairman of the Sverdlovsk regional branch of party «the Apple» and leave the party. This decision was dictated by the following reasons. As a candidate for Governor of Sverdlovsk region the Federal leadership of the party imposed unpopular in the environment of the Sverdlovsk Yabloko, and the residents of the region the figure of Mr Roizman. In Moscow mistakenly believe that Yevgeny Roizman has retained its former popularity, which was with him at the moment of promotion in mayors of Yekaterinburg four years ago,» — said in a statement Pereverzin posted Saturday on the website of the Department.

According to him, the proposal «to hold a vote on the nomination of the candidate in governors on an alternative basis, to comply with basic democratic principles of the Federal leadership was ignored».

«Manifested by the Federal party leadership voluntarism brought the situation to a split in the Sverdlovsk regional office. A number of delegates wrote a statement about leaving the party. In fact, the regional office ceased to exist», — added ex-the mayor of Pervouralsk.

In mid-may, Roizman said that he intends to go on elections of the Governor of Sverdlovsk region from the party «Yabloko».
