MOSCOW, December 23 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov who was appointed Kremlin chief-of-staff on Thursday is likely to keep the job after the presidential election if Prime Minister Vladimir Putin returns to the Kremlin, a high-ranking Kremlin source told reporters.
“It is not ruled out,” the source said.
“Sergei Borisovich is an experienced politician and administrator. He is to ensure strict operations of the Kremlin administration before the presidential election and right after it,” the source said.
Four years ago Ivanov alongside with Dmitry Medvedev was considered a potential successor to Putin in the Kremlin.
Ivanov replaced Sergei Naryshkin who was elected speaker of the State Duma on Wednesday.
