BARVIKHA, May 25 (Itar-Tass) —— The new ministries of health and labor and social security will start working next week, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets told reporters on Friday.
In her words, the ministries planned to start their activity within six months. “I reduced the transitional period. The regulations for both ministries will be published next week, and both ministries will start working,” she said.
Golodets called correct the division of the Health and Social Development Ministry into the Health Ministry and the Labor and Social Security Ministry. “That will assist the creation of a new professional clan,” she said.
Former Health and Social Development Minister, Presidential Aide Tatiana Golikova said that the division of the ministry would be rather rapid. “There will be no sweeping reorganization, like the one of 2004,” she said. Golikova described new Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova as a good doctor. New Labor and Social Security Minister Maxim Topolin has long been working in that area, but now he has broader powers and supervise pensions and labor relations, Golikova said. “We have a perfect relationship, and I am always ready to help,” she said. Golikova could not say whether it would be easier to work on the new position.
