MOSCOW October 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Dmitry Medvedev will be able to implement his ideas announced during his presidency when he becomes head of government in 2012, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.
He stressed that during his term of office President Dmitry Medvedev has transferred the solution of critical national development issues from office discussions to practical steps. These fundamental things are stated in the national development programme up to 2020 and include development of democratic institutions, diversification, and economic modernisation.
“It is very important to have tools for carrying on this work,” Putin added.
“If Dmitry Anatolyevich [Medvedev] leads the United Russia [election] list, if people vote for this list and if a capable parliament is elected, then, relying on this parliament, he will be able to form a capable government in order to implement the programme he has put on the practical agenda,” Putin said.
