MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Speaker of the current State Duma, or lower house of the national parliament, Boris Gryzlov said on Sunday he lays no claims to the post in a next Duma but will stay “if the people wants.”

Gryzlov spoke at a media forum of the ruling United Russia party, of which he is a co-leader.

In his words, by the parliamentary elections on December 4 he will have stayed at his post for eight years running. “But the job of State Duma speaker is a very serious and hard one,” he said. “Over these eight years I have turned from a black-haired young man into a grey, experienced man,” he told journalists.

“The term ‘to lay claims’ is not quite accurate,” he noted. “I lay no claims for such positions.”

“It’s up to the people to decide. If United Russia wins great support in the December 4 elections, it will be clear for me that the people support me as well. Otherwise, a different decision will be taken,” he added.
