As a candidate for substitution local media called Head of the Federal Bailiff Service Artur Parfenchikov.
Head of Karelia Alexander Khudilainen announced his decision to resign early.
"I appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin about early resignation as the Head of the Republic of Karelia. You know that today work for staff rotation at the regional and federal level takes place, and that's deliberate, balanced decision not to join the polls, to which 207 days remains," TASS quotes Khudilainen.
As Kommersant previously reported, as a candidate to replace Khudilainen local media called Head of the Federal Bailiff Service Artur Parfenchikov. "His candidacy fits into the scheme, which is already being implemented: a person from the region, and at the same time long gone. Parfenchikov was a prosecutor of Petrozavodsk in early 00's, so, he is not a stranger," said Vice-President of the Center for Political Technologies Alexey Makarkin.
Recall, last week, Head of Buryatia Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn and Governor of the Perm region Viktor Basargin resigned. Instead of first there was appointed Alexey Tsydenov, the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, instead of a second - Maxim Reshetnikov, who worked in the Moscow Government as the Head of the Economic Policy Department. On February 13, Novgorod Region Governor Sergey Mitin announced the resignation, adding that he does not intend to participate in the 2017 election campaign.
The city police detained two officers of the Russian FSB and the deputy chief of the Internal Affairs Directorate for the North-East Administrative District Department of the Interior Ministry of Russia for Moscow, who are suspected of bribe-taking.
