SEOUL, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday Russia’s new government will be seriously changed but its composition will be announced after the inauguration of the new president.
Medvedev told a news conference in Seoul he “is in a regime of consultations about the composition of the new government” with President Elect Vladimir Putin. “We are discussing the structure and personalities,” he said answering the query of Itar-Tass.
“It will be an utterly new government both in terms of its form and content,” he stressed. “The country will not be left without a government, and its structure will be most optimal.” However he refused to name possible candidates for ministerial positions, saying “such talk is to no avail” until Vladimir Putin takes office on May 7.
“The new government will be formed as soon as the new president takes his oath. Before that all talk is vain because it is absolutely pointless,” Medvedev said.
He also said that all current power institutions will be in place “until their terms expire.”
