MOSCOW, August 13 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow mayoral election candidate from the Communist Party /KPRF/ Ivan Melnikov said he was ready, in case of his victory, to offer a job in the Moscow government to Yabloko Party leader Sergei Mitrokhin.
"I see him /Mitrokhin/ as a deputy mayor for reanimating the ecological system and supervision of administrative/technical norms," Melnikov told reporters on Tuesday adding that the list of Yabloko leader's duties would be more specific.
"His duties as a Moscow government official should not interfere with his leading his Party," the KPRF candidate noted.
The Moscow government will have 11 deputy mayors including representatives of the Communist Party, A Just Russia, and Yabloko, as well as Luzhkov's and Sobyanin's representatives.
"The Moscow government will work a year before the election to the city legislature. Then it will account for its work before the new city parliament which will have broader functions. "After the performance report, the legislators will decide if this or that minister is worthy of keeping his job in the government or ask the mayor to replace him," Melnikov said.
Oleg Smolin will handle new social policy issues. Andrei Klychkov will be deputy mayor for administrative reform and interaction with government bodies. He will also be Moscow government chief of staff.
Lyudmila Shvetsova /United Russia/ will supervise welfare policies for low-income strata and A Just Russia representative Lyudmila Khovanskaya will be responsible for the housing and public utilities sector and provision of urban amenities. Viktor Zakharov who oversees security and antiterrorist measures is the only representative of the incumbent Moscow City administration who will be offered to work in the new team, Melnikov said.
