Church must not get involved in politics - poll

MOSCOW. Feb 8 (Interfax) - Some 51% of the respondents polled by the Public Opinion Foundation say the clergy's involvement in politics is impermissible.

The opinion was mostly expressed by Muscovites (65%), St. Petersburg residents (56%), people with a monthly income higher than 20,000 rubles and managers (58%).

A quarter of Russians believe that clerics may speak up on political subjects but should take no part in politics. The majority of such respondents are St. Petersburg residents (30%), people ages 18 to 30, specialists and people with a higher education (27%).

Eleven percent welcome the church's engagement in the political life of the country. They do not mind if clerics become deputies, mayors or governors.

These people have monthly incomes less than 4,000 rubles, villagers and the unemployed (14%). Six percent of Muscovites and St. Petersburg residents approved of the political activity of the church.

Twelve percent of Russians are hesitant about the church's role in politics.
