MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Chairman of the United Russia Supreme Council Boris Gryzlov will probably retain the post in the Russian Security Council, Deputy Secretary of the United Russia General Council presidium Yuri Shuvalov told reporters on Wednesday.
The reporters asked him whether Gryzlov will retain his post in the Security Council only until the expiry of his powers. “I would not formulate it this way,” Shuvalov said.
Currently Gryzlov occupies this post as the speaker of the fifth State Duma. He was elected as a deputy of the sixth State Duma, but refused from his mandate on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the politician noted that he will retain his post as the chairman of the United Russia Supreme Council.
The chiefs of the governmental staff and the presidential executive office, power-wielding ministers, the speakers of both houses of parliament and the top brass of the security services are included in the Russian Security Council as permanent members. Presidential representatives in the federal districts, several ministers and the chiefs of the federal services are members in the Security Council.
