The leaders of the parties CPRF and LDPR 73-year-old Gennady Zyuganov and 71-year-old Vladimir Zhirinovsky will be able to hold their positions in Russian politics and is unlikely to leave the chair leaders of their parties in the coming years, this does not prevent their participation in the next presidential elections along with a possible re-nomination from the Communist party Pavel Grudinina, said political analyst Pavel Svyatenkov.

Commenting on the internal situation in the Communist party, the political scientist called occupied at the last election the position of Gennady Zyuganov win. He noted that the Deputy, most likely, will not weaken their impact on the activities of the party.

«That is, on the one hand, in the case of failure of the candidate, he could blame everything on the candidate, and in the case of relative success to say that it is to his credit because Zyuganov held the position of campaign Manager Grudinina. In this case, the way it will happen because Grodnensky relative success, of course, prolongs the political life of Gennady Zyuganov and indicates that he demonstrated political wisdom, will not go to the polls himself and pulling Grudinina,» — told RIA Novosti Svyatenkov.

While the political prospects Grudinina the political scientist has called «not quite clear», and the probability of the nomination policy for the post of leader of the Communist party «non-obvious».

«Politically it (Pavel Grudinin — ed.) that might circumvent the leadership of the Communist party or to qualify for certain government positions, but the question is, will he be able to apply for the post of «successor» Zyuganov. It is clear that the struggle within the Communist party will gradually ignite, because Zyuganov is not getting younger, but, in General, the outcome of this election probably shows that Gennady Zyuganov will be likely to sit in the seat of the head of the Communist party, in any case, before the forthcoming, now in 2021, the State Duma elections», — said the analyst.

Speaking about further career of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, Svyatenkov stressed its importance in the agenda as «a brilliant politician and an entertainer».

«Vladimir Zhirinovsky personally in his capacity as absolutely indispensable: if the Communist party has a certain ideology, the left in this case, Zyuganov could be replaced at the same Grudinina, it is very doubtful that without Zhirinovsky’s liberal democratic party will perform well in the elections. So I think that Zhirinovsky, given the fact that his health is all good, most likely, will remain, and I think we’ll see him in three years will lead the liberal democratic party in elections to the state Duma, and who knows, most likely, and in 2024 it will move (in the next presidential election — ed.),» svyatenkov said.

He also added that the advanced age to participate in political processes on the post of leader is not an obstacle. So, the President of the United States Donald Trump is 71, a former contender for the position of head of the USA Bernie Sanders, 76, former Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi 81 years, Queen Elizabeth II, 91, recalled the analyst.
