VLADIVOSTOK, March 19 (Itar-Tass) —— The Primorye Territory's new governor Vladimir Miklushevsky took the decision on Monday to dismiss the regional administration.
He also signed a resolution to form a new structure of the administration consisting of eight instead of ten vice-governors, including two first deputies.
The executive power structure – departments – remains unchanged.
It is not known so far who of the vice-governors of the previous administration will retain the post, a source at the regional administration’s press centre told Itar-Tass.
The regional legislature endorsed Miklushevsky as governor on March 16, and the same day he officially took the office. After the ceremony, the new head of the region told reporters that the administration would consist of fewer officials and new people would come there.
