Beglov’s biography deleted from United Russia website
The acting Governor of St. Petersburg made a loud statement during a debate with another candidate for the post of Head of the city.
The biography of the Acting Governor of St. Petersburg, Alexander Beglov, was deleted from the United Russia website; when you visit the page, the site shows a 404 error.
It is noteworthy that this information about politics was deleted after Beglov called himself non-partisan during a debate with another candidate for Governor of St. Petersburg. Novaya Gazeta wrote this.
A copy of Beglov’s biography page was saved in the cache - the search engines Google and Yandex provide links with a photograph of the official and a preview of information about him. In particular, Beglov is listed as a member of the party’s highest council and former head of its St. Petersburg branch.
Beglov’s debate took place on August 13. The official stated that he was non-partisan, but also called himself "the only business executive among politicians." According to him, the time to change the management system built by United Russia has come.
The election of the Governor of St. Petersburg is scheduled for a single voting day on September 8. Beglov runs as a self-nominee. Beglov’s rivals are Mikhail Amosov (Civic Platform), Vladimir Bortko (Communist Party) and Nadezhda Tikhonova (A Just Russia).
