The main threat to the country now is a retreat towards the past, towards archaism, warned the leader of the New People, Alexei Nechaev, at the beginning of the congress. “These voices sound louder: return the death penalty, impose a single opinion on everyone. That is why today all progressive and creative forces must remain together,” said the politician. He recalled that in July an alliance was signed with the Growth Party, which demonstrated its effectiveness in the regional elections. Now the “new people” are represented in government bodies of various levels in 45 regions. The party has 37 deputies in legislative assemblies, 12 in the representative bodies of municipalities of the administrative centers of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and 90 in the executive and representative bodies of local self-government. According to the Central Election Commission, party branches are registered in 74 regions.
“We decided to go together with the Growth Party to nominate a common candidate for the presidential elections and sign an agreement. “New people” are for an increase in the standard of living, for the growth of our industry, for growth above ourselves yesterday,” Nechaev continued. He invited the leader of the Growth Party, Boris Titov, to the stage. “We, businessmen, always pragmatically search for optimal solutions,” he noted.
The next item of the congress was the nomination of a candidate for the position of head of state. The only candidate on the ballot for the secret ballot was Vladislav Davankov. All 69 delegates voted in favor of his nomination. “Everyone who has known me for many years knows that my dream has not changed. I have always dreamed that our country would be free, rich and independent,” Davankov said. Recall that the politician was born in Smolensk in 1984. He graduated from the history department of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, RGSU and from the Moscow Skolkovo School of Management. Since 2021 – deputy of the State Duma of the VIII convocation.
