Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who has headed the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia for many years, admitted that he could not find a successor. According to him, the difficulty was that not everyone would dare to take on such a responsibility. Nevertheless, according to the Russian politician, the leadership of the party cannot be passed "from hand to hand," the future leader must be supported by party members.
“It is not necessary to hand over (the party - ed.), This is not a thing, we do not have a monarchical system so that there are successors. The next congress of the party, if it sees that there are several candidates and vote for the fact that it is better to manage the party, I will only be glad, "Zhirinovsky admitted, communicating with subscribers in the format of a live broadcast on Instagram.
Despite such a comment, Zhirinovsky said that he had already stuttered with some members of the party close to the leadership on this topic, but everyone was afraid to take responsibility. The politician himself admits that running a party is very difficult.
“Now, no matter how much I suggested to those who are closest to the leadership of the party, they are afraid, because it is difficult to lead an opposition party in Russia, you need to have a lot of knowledge, to be public, to be able to answer any question at any time of the day. I would love to, but not yet, I seek, demand, insist, but everyone is afraid,”concluded Zhirinovsky.
