MAKHACHKALA, July 25 (Itar-Tass) - Parliament of Russia’s North Caucasian region of Dagestan is holding an emergency session later Thursday where it will endorse the candidacy of a new Prime Minister instead of the previous one who was dismissed from the job.
“The legislators will make a pause in their summer vacations and will get together at a session of the People’s Assembly where the candidacy of the Prime Minister will be endorsed,” a spokesman for the legislature’s press service told Itar-Tass.
“Acting President Ramazan Abdulatipov will offer his own candidate to the MPs and the candidate will speak briefly about his program,” he said. “After that the voting will begin.”
Dagestani government was sent packing Monday last week for ‘inefficient performance’. “The dynamics of the government’s work was far behind the dynamics of the President’s work,” Abdulatipov said.
Anatoly Karibov, formerly a Deputy Prime Minister, has been appointed Acting Prime Minister of Dagestan.
All members of the previous cabinet are expected to present detained reports on their achievements as of the moment of resignation.
