The Federal Bureau of Yabloko on Wednesday by secret ballot approved of the mayor of Yekaterinburg Yevgeny Roizman as a candidate of the party in the elections of the Governor of Sverdlovsk region, the correspondent of RIA Novosti.

The nomination of the party also claimed the businessman Sergei Tyurikov. To nominate Roizman expected on Saturday at the conference «Apple» in Ekaterinburg, but after the demarche of the head of the regional branch Yury Pereverzev, resigned and retired from the party, the decision on the candidate was rescheduled for next week.

Roizman received 9 out of 10 of the votes of the members of the Bureau of the party for Tyurikova voted one member of the Bureau.

During the meeting, the founder of the party Grigory Yavlinsky cited arguments in favor Roizman, referring to his experience as a Duma Deputy, member of the government Commission to combat drug addiction, head of the Yekaterinburg and copyright laws.

«Such strong and courageous people like Roizman, Russian policy is not. Did you not understand that the fight against drug trafficking – the road to the cemetery? And he fought both with the authorities and with drug trafficking. This means that the person has the experience, willingness, ability, inclination to fight the mob – and it hardly probable not the main thing in work on a post of the Governor. Mafia – the main feature of regional life. Only one is as a person should be put forward,» said Yavlinsky.

The politician said that he personally agreed with Roizman all 10 points of the Memorandum of political alternatives «Apple». «This is quite enough to understand his political position. We are ready to help work on his economic program,» concluded Yavlinsky.
