MOSCOW, November 21 (Itar-Tass) — Chairman of the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov said the head of state could not be head of the Council because this would run counter the nature of the structure.
“This Presidential Council is unusual: the others involve representatives of executive power and experts while our Council includes only public representatives. This is not the inter-department structure,” Fedotov said in his comment on a proposal by one of the Council members saying it should be headed by the president.
“Our Council is unique and it was being created by Vladimir Putin quite so,” he stressed.
Earlier, mass media quoted one of the Council members saying the Council should be lead by Vladimir Putin, who also leads the councils for culture and science.
