MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s State Duma lower parliament house on Tuesday officially relieved Andrei Vorobyev of his lawmaker’s competences following his appointed acting governor of the Moscow region earlier this month.
The Duma also approved Vladimir Vasilyev, who was elected the leader of the United Russia faction on November 10, deputy speaker of the lower house. Previously, Vorobyev held both posts.
When greeting Vasilyev on his new post, speaker Sergei Naryshkin made a slip of the tongue and called him “speaker.” “What have I said. I nearly relieved myself of my duties,” he corrected himself with a smile.
Later on Tuesday, congratulations to Vasilyev came from Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
