MOSCOW, May 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s acting Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov has signed resignation of the government following the inauguration of Vladimir Putin as Russian President on Monday.
Under the Russia law, the government resigns as soon as the president elect takes office, although it continues to perform its functions until a new government is appointed.
The Russian constitution allows a new president two weeks to nominate a prime minister, and binds the parliament to consider the candidature within a span of one week. This time, however, the procedure is going to take one day.
After the prime minister is appointed, under the constitution, he or she have one week to submit to the president candidatures of deputy prime ministers and federal ministers.
This procedure will not take long either.
