LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed a ban on political parties in Russia and advocated an elective monarchy.

“Democracy will destroy us. As long as we live under a democracy, we will have to crawl. In order not to crawl but advance, we need to move away from democracy and embrace an imperial form of government.” he said, speaking at the All-Russian Youth Forum “Seliger”.

“Democracy and the multiparty system were imposed on weak states.” said the parliamentarian.

“All parties should be banned! There should be a monarchy, but an elective one – five to six thousand people meet, the very best individuals, and choose an emperor!” he concluded.
