“Today in the City Council four political parties are presented: «United Russia», "LDPR", «Just Russia» and the Communist Party of the Russian Federation”,  the head of the Ufa City Council reminded. “Despite of political variety, the City Council did not become a place for political battles. We work together and the political affiliation does not influence acceptance of important decisions for our city”.

Answering a question of an i-gazeta user about expediency in Ufa of posts of the chairman of the City Council and the head of administration of Ufa, Evgeniy Semivelichenko reminded that the existing structure is formed according to the law and legal norms.
