Online registration for Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's People's Front project is now available on his official website.
Putin called for the creation of the All-Russia People's Front at a conference of the ruling United Russia party on May 6 to broaden the party's electoral base with "non-party people," including trade unions, NGOs, business associations and youth groups.
A registration form contains 11 points, including name, gender, social status, education, home address, email and telephone numbers.
Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov earlier said "front" members will not be issued a membership card but will have access to United Russia's "electoral resources."
The front has already been joined by over 450 community groups, which are to submit their proposals before June 15, after which an election program will be developed.
Some analysts see Putin's project as a bid to boost his United Russia party's flagging popularity and head off a potentially damaging poor showing in upcoming parliamentary elections.

The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
