MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Leader of A Just Russia Sergei Mironov does not doubt Dmitry Medvedev will be the new prime minister.
“I do not doubt President Elect Vladimir Putin, like he has promised, will nominate the candidature of Dmitry Medvedev for the position of prime minister. I do not doubt either that the State Duma, where the United Russia Party has the majority, will support him,” Mironov told reporters during a briefing on Monday.
However, he stressed he is against the candidature of Medvedev, as in his opinion this change “is not the best form from the point of view of democracy.”
“As yet, this is only my point of view. The faction has not discussed the issue as yet,” he said. Mironov did not rule out his position “may remain in minority.”
Speaking about formation of a new Cabinet, Mironov was categorically against reappointment of Minister of Healthcare and Social Development Tatiana Golikova, Minister of Education and Science Andrei Fursenko, Minister of Transport Igor Levitin, Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev and Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov.
“I would not like them to join the government,” Mironov said.
