MOSCOW, March 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The United Russia Party had consultations with the Russian presidential envoy over the nomination of candidates for governors in the Saratov and Omsk regions on Friday.
First deputy head of the Russian presidential staff Vyacheslav Volodin represented the presidential side at the meeting, the press service of the United Russia Party reported. Chairman of the United Russia Supreme Council Boris Gryzlov, Secretary of the United Russia General Council presidium Sergei Neverov and head of the United Russia faction in the State Duma Andrei Vorobyev were participating in the consultations from the party. Heads of the interregional coordination councils in the Volga and Siberian Federal Districts Sergei Kancher and Sergei Zheleznyak were also participating in the meeting.

Meanwhile, Gryzlov noted that “the settlement of the problems in the Saratov and Omsk Regions is within the authority of not only chief executives in these regions, but also the United Russia Party.” “Therefore, it is important for us that the regions are headed by professional, efficient and responsible chiefs, who can solve the problems of people,” he said.
