KHABAROVSK, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport, who headed the regional list of the United Russia Party at the State Duma elections, refused from a deputy mandate. He has filed an application to this effect to the Central Elections Commission, the press service of the territorial government said on Wednesday.
According to the elections results, the Khabarovsk office of the United Russia Party gained two seats in the lower house of Russian parliament. Gen. Mikhail Moiseyev, who had the second position in the election list, and Boris Reznik, to whom Shport’s mandate will be passed, will represent the territory in the sixth State Duma.
“Boris Lvovich Reznik represented worthily our region in the State Duma for more than ten years. For the period of work in the parliament he has done much for Far Eastern residents. For ten years he headed the Nadezhda charity foundation for the aid to severely ill children, which raised over 100 million roubles for the children’s health care services in the territory,” the governor noted.
