GORKI, April 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev agreed to head the United Russia Party.
“I am grateful for the proposal. I accept it officially,” the president said at a meeting with the leadership of the United Russia Party.
“I would like to thank you for the trust, which you placed in me, making a relevant proposal (to head the party), thank Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, who has made a relevant statement, proposing me to become the party chairman,” Medvedev said.
The president acknowledged that this proposal “is a very serious trust and a high responsibility” for him. “The point is not only in the fate of the party, but already I do not distance from what is happening in the party for a quite long time, with the support in United Russia in the state and political policy. This is also a matter of country’s development, where the country will move, what it will be like and what will happen with us,” the president elaborated.
He thanked again United Russia and its chairman for the proposal to head the party. “I officially accept it and believe that this will help all of us to move forward,” Medvedev noted.
