BARNAUL, December 12 (Itar-Tass) — Krasnoyarsk city mayor Pyort Pimashkov who has been ruling Russia’s third largest city in Siberia for 15 years has filed his resignation, the city council of deputies said on Monday.
In December 1996 Pimashkov was first elected Karnoyarsk city mayor. In March 2008 he was re-elected to this position for the fourth time gaining 70.5 percent of voters’ support.
Some observers interlink Pimashkov’s resignation with weak results that United Russia demonstrated during the elections to the lower house of parliament.
Later in the day the Krasnoyarsk city council will announce, when the local legislature’s session will take place to decide on Pimashkov’s resignation. It may take place on December 14.
