NIZHNY NOVGOROD, January 13 (Itar-Tass) —— There will be no serious reshuffle of the Kremlin administration until the presidential election in March 2012, presidential administration head Sergei Ivanov said on Friday.
“There will be no reshuffle, at least, until the inauguration of the president elect. The new president will choose his team, that is his sovereign right,” he noted.
Ivanov took the position of the presidential administration head in December 2011, after his predecessor Sergei Naryshkin became the State Duma speaker.
“In fact, the presidential administration has already been reshuffled,” Ivanov said. He recalled that presidential aide Dzhakhan Pollyeyva had become a parliament deputy and first deputy head of the presidential administration Vladislav Surkov had become a government member.
So far Ivanov said he would concentrate on the smooth operation of the presidential administration in the election campaign period.
