MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — President Vladimir Putin on Monday is expected to take a decision on the government structure and lineup. A Kremlin press service official told Itar-Tass, "The Head of State will hold a meeting with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev".
Monday sees the expiry of the deadline set by the Constitution for the formation of a government following the new president's inauguration and confirmation of the premier's nomination.
On May 15, Medvedev presented his proposals to Putin, after which he traveled to the United States for a G-8 summit instead of the President, who remained in Russia to hold consultations with each candidate in order to decide whether to sign a decree about appointment.
Since May 16, the President has been holding consultations with candidates for ministerial positions and studying Medvedev-suggested draft decree about the structure of Federal executive power bodies.
