MOSCOW, August 14 (Itar-Tass) - Acting Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin spoke up against separating the posts of mayor and head of government in the city.

“Such suggestions have been made, but I think this is a way to shirk responsibility when a person who is actually the chief manager delegates some of his functions to the head of government who will assume these powers,” Sobyanin told Business FM radio on Wednesday, August 14.

He believes that if this happens during an election campaign, this is nothing short of deceiving the voters. “Muscovites are choosing a person who will run the city and he says: ‘If you elect me, I will not manage [things] myself but I will hire another person, whom you do not know, and he will do it,” Sobyanin said.

“I think this is unacceptable for Moscow,” he added.
