ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), April 1 (Itar-Tass) – The leading candidate for mayor in the Moscow regional town Zhukovsky Andrei Voityuk pledged to “review seriously” the work of the Zhukovsky authorities in case of his victory at the Zhukovsky mayoral elections. He has made a statement to this effect to reporters on Monday.
According to the reports from the Moscow Regional Election Commission, after the votes were counted at 40 out of 52 polling stations, Commander of the Airlift and Rescue Centre of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations and Civil Defence (EMERCOM) Andrei Voityuk gained 37% of votes.
“The work of the Zhukovsky authorities will be reviewed and all those officials, who brought some positive results and worked well, will keep on working here,” he said. Those officials, “who did not cope with all the tasks or inflicted some damages, will be unfortunately dismissed,” Voityuk said. “But before this a very serious review and assessment of the work of each official will be done,” he pledged.
In reply to a journalist’s question what his first step at the post of the Zhukovsky mayor can be, Voityuk offered to the reporters “to look at the situation in the streets.” “The very first thing that should be done is to clean the city from the dirt,” he said.
