The head of the Astrakhan branch “Fair Russia” Oleg Shein became the Deputy of the state Duma, having received the mandate of the deceased in the CEC Nikolai Levicheva. About this Shein reported on his page in Facebook. “The Presidium of the party unanimously voted for the transfer of the released mandate colleagues Levicheva me. I am grateful to my friends for their support and high confidence, which I will try to justify,” wrote Shein.
The Deputy of the Astrakhan regional Duma Shein became widely known after in 2012 he ran for mayor of Astrakhan with the support of the opposition, namely supporters of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, PARNAS party and others. However, Shein lost the election, and in protest went on hunger strike.
In February, RBC reported that the Deputy speaker of the state Duma Levichev will be put forward by the party in the CEC.
Levichev later confirmed this information. March 28, at the first meeting of the new Commission was approved. Vice-speaker of the Levicheva instead became Deputy Chairman of the Committee on international Affairs Alexander Romanovich.
