    MOSCOW, March 4, 2004 (RIA Novosti) - Deputy Chairman of the Rodina faction in the State Duma (Parliament's lower house) Sergei Baburin does not rule out that instead of Sergei Glazyev, current Vice Speaker Dmitry Rogozin may take the post of the faction leader.

    At the same time Mr. Baburin believes that Mr. Rogozin will preserve the post of the house deputy chairman.

    The results of the current nominal voting concerning the dismissal of Mr. Glazyev from the post of the faction leader will be announced on Thursday, Mr. Baburin disclosed to journalists.

    Mr. Baburin stated on the previous occasions that he did not intend to work with Mr. Glazyev no matter what the outcome of the voting would be. According to him, he has many claims to the current leader of the faction. One of the main claims is that Mr. Glazyev, who is currently running for the post of the Russian president, uses the faction as his pre-election headquarters and this consequently obstructs the legislative activity of the Rodina faction.

    Mr. Glazyev in his turn scheduled an extraordinary session of the Rodina faction for Thursday evening.
