MALOYAROSLAVETS, April 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Governor of the Moscow Region Boris Gromov said on Tuesday after his resignation he plans to get a job at the Federation Council, or upper parliament house. He also said he had no doubt his office will be taken by Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu.
“I will represent the Moscow Region at the Federation Council,” he told journalists.
Commenting on Shoigu’s chances to take the office of the governor of the Moscow Region, Gromov said, “I am one hundred percent sure he will be governor.” “Things will clear out this week,” he added.
According to Gromov, the region’s key problems include the poor situation in the housing and utilities sector, the implementation of a plan for the construction of roads, and social problems. When asked if Shoigu will be able to solve these problems, Gromov said he would always be there to extend a helping hand.
Gromov’s office term expired in May. On March 23, he said he planned to leave the post after serving 12 years as Moscow Region’s governor. On March 30, the ruling United Russia party, which holds the majority of seats in the regional legislature, submitted to the Russian president a list of three candidates for Moscow Region governor. The president is to choose his nominee from among Igor Parkhomenko, the first deputy head of the Moscow Region’s government; Alexander Khodyrev, the mayor of the town of Reutov, and Sergei Shoigu, the Russian Emergencies Minister.
