MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow city mayor office has denied the media spread information on early mayoral elections in 2014.
“This information does not correspond to reality,” mayor’s spokeswoman Gulnara Penkova told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The term of office of Sergei Sobyanin who was confirmed as the Russian capital’s mayor two years ago expires in 2015.
Earlier Sobyanin announced that he was ready to take part in the early elections if it is necessary. Speaking about his possible participation in the mayoral race Sobyanin said he will run if he feels support of the Muscovites.
According to the survey of the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Centre (VTSIOM), most Muscovites are satisfied with the state of affairs in Moscow and give positive assessment to Sobyanin’s two-year work as mayor.
Residents of the Russian capital name traffic jams and influx of migrants as Moscow’s main problems.
