State Duma announces date of new Prime Minister’s nomination
President Vladimir Putin should nominate a candidate for the new Head of the government.
The candidacy of the new Prime Minister of the Russian Federation will most likely be approved after the inauguration of the President. RIA Novosti reports this with reference to deputy chairman of the lower house of parliament on state legislation Mikhail Yemelyanov.
According to him, the appointment of the Prime Minister, as a rule, occurs the day after the inauguration of the President. In addition, "the great authority of Vladimir Putin" allows him to carry out this procedure quickly, said Yemelyanov.
"It is believed that this is his candidacy, he trusts him, and people have the great confidence, respectively, this nominee passes procedures pretty quickly," states Yemelyanov.
For comparison, he referred to the example of 1998, when the deputies rejected the candidacy of Viktor Chernomyrdin for the post of prime minister twice, after which Yevgeny Primakov approved the head of the Cabinet. Then the procedure was delayed precisely because the Head of state did not have such authority, Yemelyanov stressed.
Recall that the presidential election was held on March 18. Voter turnout was 67.54%. Current President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin won with a result of 76.69% of the vote, according to the final data of the CEC, more than 56.4 million people voted for him. The inauguration of the President will be held on May 7.
Vladimir Putin described the events of August 1991 as a "coup attempt" in the film Sobchak’s Case about the ex-Mayor of St. Petersburg, filmed by Ksenia Sobchak. Zolotov told how he had defended the White House.
