MOSCOW, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — The United Russia Party will nominate presidential chief of staff Sergei Naryshkin as speaker of the State Duma, a source close to the UR Supreme Council told Itar-Tass.
Earlier on Saturday, first deputy secretary of the party’s General Council Presidium Andrei Isayev told journalists that the party intended to nominate Naryshkin as speaker of the State Duma.
“In fact, he [Naryshkin] is very experienced. He was head of the presidential administration and took an active part in our pre-election campaign. As of today he has a considerable weight among those who will be involved in the new State Duma,” Isayev said after the meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Gorki on December 17.
At the parliamentary elections Naryshkin was leader of the United Russia Party list in the Leningrad region. On December 14, Boris Gryzlov, who was chairman of the lower house of parliament, surrendered the deputy’s mandate and wanted to quit.
