MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) —— First Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov refused to speculate about the composition of the new government which may be formed by Dmitry Medvedev if he swaps jobs with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin after the presidential 2012 election.
“It is too early to speak about it. Now it is necessary to carry out the election campaign and hold the State Duma election and then the presidential election,” he told a press conference on Sunday.
He refused to comment on the refusal of Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin to work in Medvedev’s government.
“If he said that it’s what he said. But I am saying we have to work right now rather than think what happens later,” Zubkov said.
