VLADIVOSTOK, March 16 (Itar-Tass) — At an extraordinary session on Friday, the legislative assembly of Russian Primorye approved the candidacy of Vladimir Miklushevsky for region’s governor.

A total of 34 of 38 deputies attending the session voted for him. All in all, there are 40 deputies in the regional parliament. A simple majority of votes – 21 out of 40 was needed to approve him for the office of governor.

The office of the Primorye governor had been vacant since February 28, when President Dmitry Medvedev sacked former governor Sergei Darkin and appointed Vladimir Miklushevsky, the rector of the Far Eastern Federal University, acting governor.

Medvedev submitted the candidacy of Miklushevsky for governor to the legislative assembly on March 10. His candidacy was supported by the Central Executive Committee of the United Russia Party.
