DIMITROVGRAD, September 26 (Itar-Tass) —— "No one revoked discipline and subordination in the government," President Medvedev said. He reminded of the fact that an election campaign began in the country. "This is a serious trial for the state system, which tells on one’s nerves," Medvedev declared, linking "a number of statements" to this factor. This also applies to Kudrin's statement who declared he "was not going to work in a new government," the president noted.
"There is no new government, and no one has handed in invitations to anyone," Medvedev said . "But we have the old government which is accountable to me and which shall work in the framework of constitutional powers," Medvedev stressed.
The president reminded of the fact that all the government resolutions have signatures left by the government leadership, including the finance minister.
"Alexei Leonidovich had an opportunity to declare his position earlier, quit and join the right forces who invited him," Medvedev noted.
The president emphasized he expected Kudrin to reply “tonight'. "You might consult anyone you like, but as long as I am president I make such decisions myself," Medvedev stressed.
