The Fair Russia party will not nominate its candidate in the March 2 presidential elections, its leader and Speaker of Federation Council, the upper house of parliament, Sergei Mironov said on Friday.

He declared that the party would "support one of the already nominated candidates, probably the one from the United Russia party, which is led by President Vladimir Putin and has won overwhelming victory in the elections of the State Duma, the lower house of parliament.

"On Dec. 22 the party's Central Council will shape and formalize the party's position legally," Mironov was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.

"I believe that a new president should have as many support and supporters, including political parties, as possible," he said.

Fair Russia got 7.74 percent of votes in the Dec. 2 Duma elections and have cleared the 7-percent threshold to enter parliament.
