MOSCOW, October 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin believes that after elections changes may occur in the United Russia party leadership.
“The main thing – it’s the people’s trust. United Russia should remain the leading political force in the country and in the State Duma,” the RF cabinet head said in an interview with Russian TV channels. “There should be no favourites, and the final decisions should not be based on personal likes or dislikes,” Putin said. “As for the governing bodies of the party: I think that they will also undergo changes.”
“An ordinary citizen always has a choice,” Putin said with confidence, adding that “it is not right to say that the vote outcome is predetermined.”
The full interview of the prime minister, according to the Rossiya 24 television channel, will be aired at 20:30 MSK, Monday by Channel One, Rossiya and NTV TV channels.
According to prime minister’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, this interview is a continuation of the September meeting of President Dmitry Medvedev with the heads of the country’s leading television channels.
