Prokhorov alludes he will stop partying, start unifying parties
December 28, 2011
Mikhail Prokhorov, the Russian billionaire who owns the New Jersey Nets professional basketball team, recently announced that he would be running against incumbent Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for the presidency.
Bloomberg's Businessweek reports that the bachelor, who has a history of being a bit indulgent when it comes to celebrating, recently acknowledged his free-wheeling ways.
"If I become president, I won't be able to party anymore," he said during a Russian television interview. "If the country says it's necessary, I'll marry."
RT.com reports that Prokhorov was also very vague when questioned about his intentions to create a political party to represent liberal Russia, or unify the current parties. He did allude to the possibility of getting other political figures together to find some way to cooperate with one another.
