In contrast to the splits and fusions observed amongst other sectors, however, the LDPR has remained relatively unaffected by the growing pains of the Russian party system. The party’s faction had the most stable membership in the second State Duma (1995–9). 73 The third longest-standing party is Yabloko, the only one besides the CPRF and LDPR to have sat in all three post-Soviet State Dumas. It was founded in the course of the 1993 election campaign by Grigorii Yavlinsky (a co-author of the stillborn ‘500 Days’ economic plan, which sought to effect a rapid transition from state to market economy), Yurii Boldyrev (a member of the presidential administration, who later split from the organization) and Vladimir Lukin (former Russian ambassador to the USA).
