MOSCOW, February 8 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Ministry of Education and Science has submitted proposals to the Russian government on a candidacy of a new head of the Higher Attestation Commission, Deputy Minister Igor Fedyukin told reporters on Friday.
"Yesterday we sent our proposals to the government on the issue. We are waiting for the decision," he said, declining to give the name of the contender.
Media reported earlier that deputy chairman of the commission and Rector of People's Friendship University of Russia Vladimir Filippov might head the commission. The university press service has not commented on the possible appointment.
Former head of the Higher Attestation Commission Felix Shamkhalov was detained earlier this week on suspicion of fraud.
