MOSCOW, May 23 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to appoint Chief Prosecutor Yuri Chaika for a new term. The president submitted Chaika’s candidacy for approval to the Russian Federation Council on Monday, Andrei Klishas, the head of the Federation Council Committee for Constitutional Legislation and State Construction, told TASS.
He believes that his committee will receive the document on Monday. "In case it happens today, we will consider [Chaika’s] candidacy at a committee meeting [on Tuesday, May 24 - TASS] and will recommend the chamber to consider it," the lawmaker said. Klishas added that the committee would meet at 12:00 on Tuesday while the Federation Council, the upper chamber of Russian parliament (Federal Assembly), will consider the issue at its meeting on May 25.
"I am sure that our committee will support the candidacy of Yuri Chaika given the experience of interaction between the Prosecutor General’s Office and the chambers of the Russian Federal Assembly in recent years," Klishas said.
