STAVROPOL, November 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Stavropol Territory's Governor Valery Gayevsky has dismissed the regional government. He made the statement here on Monday.
"I appraise the cabinet work as satisfactory, but it is too little for an efficient and qualitative breakthrough. We have worked well together and learned to solve technical issues well, and there are results. On the whole, I consider the activities of the territory's government as satisfactory. But satisfactory is a ‘three’ grade [of five]. Residents of the territory and the federal centre wait quite the other from us," Gayevsky said.
According to the governor, the Stavropol Territory is in the focus of attention of the federal authorities. Moscow understands the importance of the region in the development of the south of the country. The region is faced with tasks that require more dynamism and more creative work. But most of the colleagues need pushing, he explained.
"We must not only be leaders to attract investments, but also achieve noticeable social transformations, including to radically lower the level of poverty, which, unfortunately, is higher than on the average in Russia. It means increased demands to the cabinet of ministers. We will not achieve success if the territory remains only a granary and a health resort. New areas of development are needed," the governor believes.
It is not a pre-election step, Gayevsky added.
The governor's press service explained that the regional government structure would be changed, the number of deputy government heads would be reduced, and the entire structure would be reorganized. New strong players will be in the new team.
A new government may be formed in two-three weeks, press service head Yelena Mikhina said.
