GORKI, May 2 (Itar-Tass) — Outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev has promised to work with all the Duma parties if he is endorsed Russian new prime minister.
"If the State Duma, scheduled to meet on May 8 because a new government is to be appointed, gives me a mandate and votes confidence in me I will continue to work with all those present, possibly in slightly different formats, but there will be many such formats," outgoing President Medvedev declared Wednesday.
"I will be prepared for such meetings on different levels and for different purposes," Medvedev declared.
The outgoing president thanked Duma deputies for fruitful work during the past four years. More than 200 bills have been adopted since. Although not everyone approved them, but even critical opinions helped assume the most constructive positions on such problems as socio- economic development, global crisis, rebuff to corruption, political transformations, Medvedev said.
