Prokhorov Officially Becomes a Pol: "I'll Be A Good Prime Minister"

Mikhail Prokhorov was officially and almost unanimously elected president of the Right Cause Party Saturday, once again vowing to be an independent voice for capitalism in Russia. But he faced criticism that his party is merely part of a public relations effort by the country's leaders to pretend there is real political diversity in Russia.

In his speech of members for Pravoe Delo, the party's Russian name, Prokhorov said that while the party's slogan is "Capitalism for All", he understands "An intelligent, professional and fair state should give others social guarantees and support."  If the party can get 7 per cent of the vote in December's parliamentary elections, Prokhorov is likely to hold an official post in the government, but that is by not means certain.
