MOSCOW, March 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The United Russia Party will offer to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev three candidates for governor in the Moscow Region, namely Minister of Emergency Situations Sergei Shoigu, mayor of the Reutov town Alexander Khodyrev and first deputy prime minister of the Moscow regional government Igor Parkhomenko, Chairman of the United Russia Supreme Council Boris Gryzlov told reporters after a meeting of the United Russia General Council presidium on Friday.
“We will offer three candidates for governor of the Moscow Region, namely Igor Olegovich Parkhomenko – the first deputy chairman of the government in the Moscow Region, Alexander Nikolayevich Khodyrev – the mayor of the Reutov town, Sergei Kuzhugetovich Shoigu – Russian Minister of Emergency Situations,” he pointed out.
The term in office of incumbent governor of the Moscow Region Boris Gromov will expire in May. “The term of my office will expire in May, I has performed these high duties for 12 years and believe that this is quite enough,” he said earlier.
A person “with a good working experience, professional and successful” should head the Moscow Region, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said. “I believe that we can find a good person and everything will be all right,” he told a press conference on Friday.
“The Moscow Region is a very important and very big region. I live in the Moscow Region (where the presidential residence Gorki is situated) and I am not indifferent about this issue,” the president acknowledged at a press conference.
“I believe that professional qualities of a person should be analyzed when taking a final decision so that he will be able to head such a big federal constituent,” Medvedev said.
